False. It is not always and can be only when the object you are pushing is stretchable and elastic like a rubber band or a balloon (not blown)

False. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Lets say you push with 2 newtons of force on a box. The box pushes you back with 2 newtons of force. Pushing harder doesn't make it move. Friction does.
