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.

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)
