Additional sinusoidal and different non-sinusoidal periodic perturbations applied to the periodically forced nonlinear oscillators decide the maintainance or inhibitance of chaos. It is observed that the weak amplitude of the sinusoidal force without phase is sufficient to inhibit chaos rather than the other non-sinusoidal forces and sinusoidal force with phase. Apart from sinusoidal force without phase, i.e., from various non-sinusoidal forces and sinusoidal force with phase, square force seems to be an effective weak perturbation to suppress chaos. The effectiveness of weak perturbation for suppressing chaos is understood with the total power average of the external forces applied to the system. In any chaotic system, the total power average of the external forces isconstant and is different for different nonlinear systems. This total power average decides the nature of the force to suppress chaos in the sense of weak perturbation. This has been a universal phenomenon for all the chaoticnon-autonomous systems. The results are confirmed by Melnikov method and numerical analysis. With the help of the total power average technique, one can say whether the chaos in that nonlinear system is to be supppressed or not.
