6. A person initially at point C on the x-axis stays there a moment, then walks along the
axis to point A, stays there for a little while, and then runs quickly to point B and
remains there.

b. The object is accelerating (speeding up).
c. The object is decelerating (slowing down).
d. The object is not moving (resting). 8. An object goes from one point to another. After it arrives at its destination, its
displacement is:
a. either greater than or equal to the distance it traveled.
b. always greater than the distance it traveled.
c. always equal to the distance it traveled.
d. always smaller than the distance it traveled.
e. always smaller than or equal to the distance it traveled.
9. The graph below shows the position of an object as a function of time.
