Three blocks on a frictionless horizontal surface are in contact

This answer was rated:

Three blocks on a frictionless horizontal surface are in contact with each other. A force F (with an arrow over top) is applied to block A (mass mA). If mA=mB=mC=10.0kg and F=96N, determine a) the acceleration of the system, b) the net force on each block, and c) the force of contact that each block exerts on its neighbor.
Hi,

Is there an angle between the Force and the horizontal axis? Or is it just applied horizontally on the blocks in the direction of the motion?

There isn't an angle between the forces, they are just lined up horizontally next to each other in the direction of motion.
Is it like the following?
