At maximum of the locations the value of ‘g’ is a maximum:
A. On the top of Mount Everest
B. On the top of Qutab Minar
C. At any place on the equator
D. A camp site in Antarctica
We know that the value of g is inversely proportional to the square of radius or g .
Radius of earth is minimum at poles, so acceleration due to gravity is maximum at poles. Similarly, radius of earth is maximum at equator, so acceleration due to gravity is minimum at equator. Also acceleration due to gravity decreases as we go higher from the earth surface.
Hence, option D is correct.

Universal law of gravitation states that every object exerts a gravitational force of attraction on every other object. If this is true, why don’t we notice such forces? Why don’t the two objects in a room move towards each other due to this force? (Picture)Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - Physics
Two particles are places at some distance from each other. If, keeping the distance between them unchanged, the mass of each of the two particles is doubled, the value of gravitational force between them will become:
