**Answer:**

**Explanation:**

To solve this equation ,we need to apply Newton's second law. Which defines

Force = Mass* Acceleration

**Mass** = 0.5 g = 0.5*10^-3 Kg

**Force **= 20 N

Acceleration = Force / Mass

Acceleration = 20 N /0.5*10^-3 Kg

Acceleration = 40000 m/s^2

**I believe you meant a mass of 0.5 Kg**

In that case, the acceleration would be

**Acceleration = 40 m/s^2**

**Option C**
