Solution

## The correct option is D When the body is sliding, kinetic friction was acting on the body and when the body stopped moving, there is no frictionWhen the body is in motion, kinetic friction tries to oppose the motion. When the body is at rest, no attempt is being made to move the object, so no friction will act on the body
