Two solid discs are rotating about a perpendicular shaft through their centers, as shown in the figure. Disc *A*, has a radius that is twice as large as disc *B*,? Which of the following statements is NOT true?

A) A point on the rim of disc *A*, has twice the linear speed as a point on the rim of disc *B*.

B) The direction of the angular velocity is to the right.

C) Every point on the body has the same angular acceleration.

D) The linear acceleration of a point on the rim of disc *B* is the same as the linear acceleration of a point halfway from the center to the rim on disc *A*.

E) The angular velocity at a point on the rim of disc *A* is twice the angular velocity of a point on the rim of disc *B*.
