Explanation:

The question is incomplete, as there are no diagrams or options to provide more information to the question.

The general explanation is as follows:

For the object not to move

(1): The forces acting on the object must opposite each other. i.e. if force A acts at the right (or positive direction), force B will act at the left (or negative direction).

(2) The two forces must be equal.

So, for instance:

If the pair of forces are 5N and 5N in opposite directions, the object wil not move.

However, if one of the forces is greater, the object will move towards the direction of the greater force.
