False.

Explanation:

The air resistance is a special type of frictional force that acts upon objects as they travel through the air. The force of air resistance is often observed to oppose the motion of an object. This force will frequently be neglected due to its negligible magnitude (and due to the fact that it is mathematically difficult to predict its value). It is most noticeable for objects that travel at high speeds (e.g., a skydiver or a downhill skier) or for objects with large surface areas.

Explanation: air resistance is a type of frictional force!

full explanation:

Air resistance force is the force of air pushing against a moving object. Air resistance (also called drag) is a type of frictional force. Like all frictional forces, the force of air resistance always opposes the motion of an object. Usually, the air resistance force is not very strong.

Please let me know if i’m wrong! :))
