    C is the correct answer, and if one of MY students needed help on that question, they would have been in deep doo-doo

    I really shouldn't give you the answer, so I will give you a hint. As the comet moves toward the sun, the sun's gravity pulls it in and speeds up the comet. But as the comet moves away, the sun's gravity pulls against the comet's motion, and slows it down.

    Now this question should be easy.
