B

'there are a condition' is incorrect, C,D out.
'has been' is incorrect time usage, out
its - refers to condition, so B is correct

To mee its seems like is verb should be plural. Because it(is) refer to bodies at rest and in motion

i would go with D

has to be plural because it is talking about a position and the converse of the position

C

Poorly formed question. (Use of there is/there are is considered bad practice]
What is the source?

I just restructured the sentence like this
"a condition and its converse are there in Newtonian laws of motion"
Also as we need possesive 'its'.

C should be correct.

Another C with the same explanation. Subject and verb are inverted.

Agree its C.

"Are" is referring to both converse and condition

my bad, I thought "it's" was possesive but infact "its" is the possesive form so the answer is C

C

"There is , are" are flipped questions

Try to invert the sentence or look at the object part directly in flipped sentebce

we have " and " hence we need "are"

it's mean "it is" and not the possessive form

Use present or past perfect only when more than actions at different intervals of time. Kill E
