The system consists of the bug alone.
The system consists of the bug plus the car.
The magnitude of change of velocity of the car is bigger than that of the bug.
The magnitude of change of momentum of the bug is bigger than that of the car.
The magnitudes of the change of velocity are equal for car and bug.
The magnitudes of the change of momentum are equal for car and bug.
