Solution

## The correct option is C there is a force on the ball opposing the motion.The explanation for correct option:Due to opposing forces of air resistance and frictional force on the ball, the ball slows down and comes to rest. There is a force on the ball opposing motion. The resistive force is a force, or the vector sum of many forces, whose direction opposes the motion of a body. Friction is a force that prevents or attempts to prevent two surfaces in contact from slipping or sliding.Hence, Option(C) is correct.
