## The Attempt at a Solution

In the solution of i), I don't understand why is it ok to apply the torque equation about O. The question does not state that block does not slide before toppling and ##\tau=I\alpha## can be applied only about CM or a fixed point, right?

Its been quite some time I have done these kind of problems, I am very sorry for any silly questions.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
