98. (d) The moment of inertia of a particle about an axis of
rotation is given by the product of the mass of the 2R
particle and the square of the perpendicular distance
of the particle from the axis of rotation. For different
axis, distance would be different, therefore moment of O R
inertia of a particle changes with the change in axis
of rotation.
