(b) velocity is proportional to the force exerted on the ball. 

(c) there is a force on the ball opposing the motion.

Best answer

(c) A batsman hits a cricket ball, which then rolls on a level ground. After covering a short distance, the ball comes to rest because there is frictional force on the ball opposing its motion. 

Frictional force always acts in the direction opposite to the direction of motion. Hence, this force is responsible for stopping the cricket ball.
