I think the answer to the first question is c)5g since the mass of the rod will be suspended solely by the string on the left hand side. THe second ans will be a) clockwise... coz the mass is suspended by left string and the last ans i think wud b d). please do verify them ........

1)torq about centre : TR= (α)mR2/(12)

torq about wire end : mgR= (α)mR2/(3)

equate to get T=mg/4=5g/4

2) A is wired end clockwise torq

3) put T=5g/4 in TR= (α)mR2/(12)

R= 1/2(length of rod)
