A person sits in an office chair with small wheels that swivel. The person claims she can move the chair across the room without touching anything but the chair, simply by kicking her legs outward. This claim:

  1. Is consistent with Newton’s laws and can be done.

  2. Is consistent with Newton’s laws but cannot be done.

  3. Is not consistent with Newton’s laws and, therefore, cannot be done.

  4. Is not consistent with Newton’s laws but nevertheless can be done.

  5. It is not possible to determine the correctness of the claim.
