b. impulse.
c. both force and impulse.
d. neither force nor impulse.

    These are not hard questions. Review the definition of impulse
    (Force x time) = (momentum change)
    and let us know what you think the answers are. We will gladly critique your answers and thought process.

    Physics is about teaching you to think, not an exercise in keyboarding.
