Tension problem

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    A 100 N load hangs from a cieling on a rope. someone pushes it with a continuing horizontal force, and it moves off to the side a little, coming to rest at a bit of an angle at the vertical. as a result, the tension in the rope is:

    A. Unchanged
    B. zero
    C. decreased
    D. increased

    Why?
