Dear Nikhil

The two teams in a tug of war are not the action/reaction. If you think of a tug of war, when the teams pull they lean back and push with their feet while pulling on the rope - the action is pushing on the ground, the reaction is the ground "pushing" back.
Who wins is determined partly by which team is stronger, which team hangs on to the rope tighter, and which team keeps their footing better.

All the best.
