Use the graph showing the motion of a person over time to answer the question.

The vertical axis is labeled, distance from home (km), and ranges from a 0 km to 14 km. The horizontal axis is labeled, time (minutes) and labeled from 0 minutes to 50 minutes. The graph shows a line that starts from the origin and slopes upward to 12 km at 10 minutes. The line remains at 12 km from 10 minutes to 30 minutes. The line slopes downward from 12 km to 0 km from 30 minutes to 45 minutes.

Which statement correctly compares his motion during the first 10 minutes to his motion during the last 10 minutes?

(1 point)

His acceleration increases during the first 10 minutes and decreases during the last 10 minutes.

He is speeding up during the first 10 minutes and slowing down during the last 10 minutes.

He is going faster and in a different direction during the first 10 minutes than in the last 10 minutes.

He is going slower and in a different direction during the first 10 minutes than in the last 10 minutes.
