In the graph above, time is shown on the x-axis and distance on the y-axis. The slope of a segment represents the speed during that interval.

which statement is true?

a-The object is moving closer to its starting position most quickly between A and B

b-the object is moving closer to its starting position most quickly between E and F

c-the object is moving farther away from its starting position most quickly between C and D

d-the object is moving farther away from its starting position most quickly betwwen D and E

b-the object is moving closer to its starting position most quickly between E and F .....the slope between these two points is (-3/2)

Between A and B, the object is moving * away* from its starting position

Between C and D the object is moving away from its starting posiyion, but not as fast as between A amd B

Between D and E, the object is moving * towards* its starting position
