Answer

If a body is pivoted at a point and the force is applied on the body at a suitable point, it rotates the body about the axis passing through the pivoted point.

The direction of rotation can be changed by changing the direction of force.

Figures given below shows the clockwise and anticlockwise movement in a circle pivoted at the centre by changing the point of application of force F from A to point B
