A certain ball is thrown upward from ground level with $200\text{ J}$ of kinetic energy. At a certain time during its motion, the ball is at a height such that the gravitational potential energy of the Earth-ball system has increased by $80\text{ J}$. By this same time, air resistance has done $-30\text{ J}$ of work on the ball.

Which of the following values indicates how much kinetic energy the ball possesses at this same time?

A

$90\text{ J}$

B

$120\text{ J}$

C

$150\text{ J}$

D

$250\text{ J}$
