Answer: 0 (zero)

Explanation:

The formula for torque = force × perpendicular distance between force and point of rotation.

Where force = 6.3 N, distance between force and point of rotation = 2.1m

It has been stated from the question that the force is applied in such a way that it is parallel to the position vector.

If we take the magnitude of this position vector, it will give the distance between the force and the point of rotation which still shows that the force is parallel to the rotation point which does not satisfy the condition for torque to occur hence torque is zero.
