_____ between labour and management is inevitable in any industrial society.

A. co-ordination

B. competition

C. friction

D. association

Correct Answer :

C. friction


Students of physics must be well aware of friction. Friction is the force that makes it difficult for things to move freely when they are touching each other. It thus shows a lack of co-ordination. If there is friction between people, there is disagreement and argument between them. That is exactly what happens between labour and management.
