The drawing shows a top view of a square box lying on a frictionless floor. Three forces, which are drawn to scale, act on the box. Consider an angular acceleration with respect to an axis through the center of the box (perpendicular to the page). Which one of the following statements is correct?
(a) The box will have a translational acceleration but not an angular acceleration.
(b) The box will have both a translational and an angular acceleration.
(c) The box will have an angular acceleration but not a translational acceleration.
(d) The box will have neither a translational nor an angular acceleration.
(e) It is not possible to determine whether the box will have a translational or an angular acceleration.
