(d) None of the other options are true for the center of mass of an object.

Work Step by Step

Let us consider some examples: 1. An irregularly shaped flat board - the center of mass lies somewhere off its center. 2. A regular triangle board with three balls at each corner, one bigger than the others - the center of mass lies somewhere between the three. 3. A ring - the center of mass lies outside the body. So, none of the options (a), (b) or (c) is true.
