A bomb free of outside forces is traveling north when it explodes into exactly three
pieces. (Ignore any gas molecules from the explosion that go off in miscellaneous
directions.) One piece continues to travel north, while another moves straight up relative
to the ground. It is possible for the third piece to travel in a direction which is exactly
a. North
b. East
c. Up
d. Down
e. South
f. West

Is the correct answer d?
