Two planets, Sudua and Blenka, are a distance $d$ apart. Blenka has mass 2 times that of Sudua.

Four objects are placed at varying locations from the Sudua, but still between Sudua and Blenka.

Object A ($\text{mass} = 2M$) is located a distance $0.5\text{ d}$ from Sudua.

Object B ($\text{mass} = 3M$) is located a distance $0.75\text{ d}$ from Sudua.

Object C ($\text{mass} = M$) is located a distance of $0.66\text{ d}$ from Sudua.

Object D ($\text{mass} = 1.5M$) is located $0.1\text{ d}$ from Sudua.

The mass of each object is much less than the mass of either planet.

At which of the following objects' locations is the magnitude of the net gravitational field the strongest?

A

Object A

B

Object B

C

Object C

D

Object D
