Answer

The original statement is false. A 50-gram object weighs less than a 2-ounce object.

Work Step by Step

$1~oz \approx 28~g$ We can convert 50 grams to units of ounces. $50~mg = \frac{50~g}{1}\times \frac{1~oz}{28~g}$ $50~mg = 1.79~oz$ We can see that the original statement is false. A 50-gram object weighs less than a 2-ounce object.
