This is the question, and the answer is given as 2).
Now my basic doubt is, are they asking us the direction of the total contact force on the object by the floor? Or, are they asking the direction of the static friction on the block by the floor? What is it? Because, the normal reaction between any two surfaces in contact is ALWAYS perpendicular to the two surfaces.
Please help me, and please answer this before closing it as being too specific.
