Solution
Verified by Toppr


With depth

g1=g(1(d)R)

As depth d goes on increasing g1 goes on decreasing, it remains maximum at the surface of Earth .The above equation is in the form of straight line.

With height

g2=g(12hR)

=g2ghR

g21R (Hyperbola)

Acceleration due to gravity goes on decreasing as the h above Earth surface increases.
Hence the correct answer is option A.
