							(A)The weight is always greater than the frictional force.
The kinetic force of friction is given as:
fk = μkN
Here, μk is the coefficient of kinetic friction, and N is the magnitude of normal force.
It is important to note that when a block rest on a horizontal surface, the normal force acting on it is equal to its weight W such that.
fk = μkW
However, if the block is kept on an inclined surface at inclination θ then the normal force balance the component of weight perpendicular to the inclined surface, which is W cosθ. Therefore,

Therefore, (A) is the correct option while the rest are ruled out.
