Solution

The correct options are
A Frictional force
C Muscular force
D Gravitational force
The archer stretches the string of the bow by applying muscular force. When the string is released, potential energy of the string is converted into kinetic energy of the arrow. After this, the force of gravity acts on the arrow in the downward direction and pulls it towards ground. Frictional force due to the air (also called air drag) slows down the bow during its motion.
