Answer: Modern physics explains most phenomena through four fundamental forces, or interactions – The strong force, electromagnetism, the weak force and gravity. The 4 sets in the question are pictures of the people who are most recognized for their work on understanding these forces.

1) Maxwell – Electromagnetism
2) Moo-Young Han, Oscar W. Greenberg and Yoichiro Nambu – Quantum chromodynamics, explaining the strong force
3) Glasgow, Salam and Weinberg – The weak force (Won the Nobel in 1979 for it)
4) Isaac Newton – Gravity :)
