Force on central charge due to the shell is zero because we know that for a body which has electric charge Q on it’s surface, the electric field due to the charge Q inside the body is zero. Therefore the central charge experiences zero force due to the shellbecause no field due to the charge on the surface of the shell is present inside the body.
Please feel free to ask any follow up doubt and approve the answer if you like it :)

it is zero since there is no electric field inside the shell.It is also like the conductor. in conductor also the charge will always resides on the surface.
