The Attempt at a Solution


I understand that the diagram of A is displaying negative acceleration and the diagram of B is displaying positive acceleration. However, I am struggling to find an answer for the question. I'm also wondering if the diagram of B can be flipped around and still represent the same thing. I am admittedly not the best physics student and any help is appreciated. Thank you.

diagram of B is displaying positive acceleration.
Acceleration is a vector, it has direction. negative acceleration is not the same as slowing down.
