Expert Answer:

The gravitational force is,
1) When mass of one object is doubled:
Thus, force also doubles.
 
2) Distance is doubled:
Thus, force becomes one-fourth.
 
When distance is tripled:
Thus, force becomes one-ninth.
 
3) When masses of both object are doubled:
Thus, force becomes four times.
 
4) Question is same as 3rd.
