Maximum acceleration that can act on a 2.5 kg mass under the action of a 16N and a 4N force is _____. How?

When, forces of 16 N and 4 N acts in same direction, then net force on the mass will be equal to sum of the two forces = 20 N and hence, acceleration of the mass would be maximum, which is given by :
F = m a
hence, a = F/m = 20/2.5 = 8 m/s2.
