Two equal forces are applied to a door. The first force is applied at the midpoint of the door; the second force is applied at the doorknob. Both forces are applied perpendicular to the door. Which force exerts the greater torque?

A) The first force at the midpoint of the door.

B) The second force at the doorknob.

C) Both forces exert equal non-zero torques on the door.

D) Both forces exert zero torque on the door.

3. The attempt at a solution

I think it's B. Would this be correct?

Thanks!
