Solution

## The correct option is D 0NSince there is no force acting on the box in horizontal direction(neither frictional or air resistance), the acceleration of box is zero, and so it continues to move with same speed.Hence no force needs to be applied to the box to keep it moving with same speed.Correct answer is option C.
