Step-by-Step Solution:

 Problem 16CQ

Solution 16 CQ

Step 1 :

In this question, we need to explain on what basis was the action of distance based on gravity

accepted after being thought it was illogical and untrue

Step 2 :

The idea of gravity started with tendency of objects to fall, it started an assumption with some kind of an attraction force was responsible for an object to fall

In order to explain the reason for the moon to rotate around and sun, again the attraction force was considered

Many problems were solved to explain this attraction force called a gravity , but there was no proper evidences and theories found

Hence the scientist started looking out for other phenomenon and theories but they again did not lead any convincing results
