The above graph shows velocity as a function of time for an object moving along a straight line.

During which time interval is the object moving in the negative direction, and what about the graph indicates this?

A

From 0 to 2 seconds, shown by the negative slope of the line.

B

From 1 to 2 seconds, shown by the negative slope of the line, paired with negative values on the y-axis.

C

From 1 to 4 seconds, shown by the negative values on the y-axis.

D

From 2 to 4 seconds, shown by the line's zero slope, paired with negative values on the y-axis.
