Which graph best describes the vertical displacement of Peach 1 and 2 over time?
Assume the origin of the coordinate system to be the cliff edge.

(Choice A)
A
A graph is shown with the vertical axis labeled y and the horizontal axis labeled t. Two lines both start at the origin and slope downwards to the right. The solid line is straight while the dashed line has downward concavity.

(Choice B)
B
A graph is shown with the vertical axis labeled y and the horizontal axis labeled t. Two lines both start at the origin and slope downwards to the right. The dashed line is straight while the solid line has upward concavity.

(Choice C)
C
A graph is shown with the vertical axis labeled y and the horizontal axis labeled t. Two lines both start at the origin and slope downwards to the right with downward concavity. Both lines are coincident.

(Choice D)
D
A graph is shown with the vertical axis labeled y and the horizontal axis labeled t. Two lines both start at the origin and slope downwards to the right with downward concavity. The solid line is shallower than the dashed line.

(Choice E)
E
A graph is shown with the vertical axis labeled y and the horizontal axis labeled t. Two lines both start at the origin and slope downwards to the right with upward concavity. The dashed line is shallower than the solid line.
