Doubt from Impulse


Q3. (b)
Answer is lower thread breaks but I'm not able to find a proper reason.Please help.Thanks.

If the force is large and sudden, lower thread breaks because as lower thread is jerked, the pull is not transmitted to upper part instantaneously (transmission depends on the elastic properties of the body). Therefore, before the mass moves, lower thread breaks
