physics

A student places five books next to each other on their ends. She then pushes the first book with her finger, and a few seconds later, the last book falls. Which statement is correct about this chain of events?
There is causation between the force of the finger and the placement of the books.

There is a correlation between the force of the finger and the placement of the books.

The force of the finger causes the books to accelerate and fall.

The acceleration of the books as they fall causes the force of the finger.
