The gravitational field strength inside a hollow sphere is zero, because'if you take imaginary sphere inside the hollow sphere then mass contain inside the sphere will be zero.
The correct option is A.

Express gravitational force quantitatively, where m and M are masses and r is the distance between them.
A cavity of radius R/2 is made inside a solid sphere of radius R. The centre of the cavity is located at a distance R/2 from the centre of the sphere. The magnitude of gravitational force on a particle of mass m at a distance R/2 from the centre of the sphere on the line joining both the centres of the sphere and the cavity is (opposite to the centre of the cavity) [Here g=(GM)/R2, where M is the mass of the sphere]
Two bodies of masses m and 4m are placed at a distance r. The gravitational potential at a point on the line joining them where the gravitational field is zero, is
A cavity of radius R2is made inside a solid sphere of radius R. The centre of the cavity is located at a distance R2 from the centre of the sphere. The gravitational field intensity at a point P, as shown in the figure is:
[Here g=GMR2, where M is the mass of the solid sphere without cavity]
The mass density of a planet of radius R varies with the distance r from its centre as ρ(r)=ρ0(1−r2R2). Then the gravitational field is maximum at:
