    Answer:

    None of these

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Normally, we consider “weight” to be the force due to gravity that an object exerts in the downward direction. It has a positive value equal to the magnitude of “mg”. In this instance, it would be …

    … |(10 kg)·(-9.8 N/kg)| = |-98 N| = 98 N

    ___

    However, you’re specifically told to use …

    … w = mg

    … w = (10 kg)(-9.8 m/s²) = -98 N

    This selection is not among those offered.
