Answer:

ans- 129.6 N

Explanation:

The gravitational pull on the body kept on horizontal surface is
w = mg =12x9.8 N
so normal reaction = 12x9.8 N
kinetic friction = #mumg# =1x12x9.8 N
net force acting on the body with acceleration 4 #mS^-2# overcoming this frictional body is
F= ma = 12x4 N
Then the applied force should be= ma+#mumg# =(12x4+1x12x9.8) N
= 129.6 N
