Physics net force and mass

Four boxes of various masses are placed on a friction
free table. Rank these boxes according to net force
by listing them in order from greatest to least.

A) <-5N--| 5 kg |--10N->

B) <-10N--|10kg|-15N-->

C) <-10N--|5kg|-15N-->

D) <-5N--|20kg|-15N-->

Thank You :)
(the |_ kg | are the boxes)

  1. With no friction, the mass in the box will not affect the net force.

    D) will have a net force of 10 N to the right. All of the other three will have a net force of 5 N to the right. They would be "tied"

  2. I apologize I forgot to add: which has the most force to the right?
    will this still affect the answer?

    Thank You
