    c. The force exerted by the train on the wall was the same in magnitude as the force exerted by the wall on the train.

    Explanation:

    Newton's Third Law states that if a body exerts a force on another body, this body exerts a force of equal magnitude but in the opposite direction on the body that produces it. So, one body cannot exert a force on another without experiencing a force in itself.
