Read the scenario. A car increases its position at a constant velocity for 5 s. Then, it stops for 5 s. Which option provides a true statement about a distance-time graph created to represent this motion?

The slope of the graph would be negative and constant for 5 s. Then, the slope would be 0 for 5 s because the slope represents velocity.

The slope of the graph would be increasing for 10 s because the slope represents the passing of time.

The slope of the graph would be positive and constant for 5 s. Then, the slope would be 0 for 5 s because the slope represents velocity.

The slope of the graph would be positive and increasing for 5 s. Then, the slope would be constant for 5 s because the slope represents velocity.
