An object has a force of 10 newtons from the right and 17 newtons from the left. Once the object starts moving toward the right, an additional force of 7 newtons is applied from the right. What can you conclude about the direction of motion of the object after the application of the additional force?

Select one of the options below as your answer:

A.
The object will continue moving toward the right.

B.
The object will slow, stop, and then begin to move toward the left.

C.
The object will come to a halt.

D.
The object will accelerate in its motion to the right.
