hi,

as normal rxn passes through centre & perpendicular to lower & upper faces & gap between centre & lower edge is

a/21/2

so (c) is correct.

hi, 

sorry for wrong ans.

now we will approach it as a case of toppling

MgsinΘ  is the component of weight which acts on centre at a distance a/2 from lower edge. so its torque will be

Τ1= MgsinΘ*a/2(.)

& normal  will nullify this effect so

T2 = MgcosΘ*r(×)

equating both

r=a/2 (from centre)

as normal passes through lower face

hence normal will pass through edge.

anand
