Two wires of same material but different diameters d1 and d2 (d1 > d2) are loaded. Which can support more weight?

Breaking stress is defined as breaking load per unit area. Breaking stress is constant of a material.

Therefore, 

Breaking load = Breaking stress X Area

                        = Breaking stress x πd24

Breaking load is directly proportional to the diameter. Therefore, thick wire can support more weight than the thin wire.

What is the force of adhesion?

Adhesive force is the attractive force between two unlike molecules. They are caused by forces acting between two substances like electrostatic force (attraction due to opposing charges), mechanical force etc. 

E.g., Force of attraction between gum and paper.
