Answer

The change in velocity of the tangerine is greatest through window 1, then window 2, then window 3.

Work Step by Step

The acceleration is cumulative, so the change in velocity is going to increase with every second that the tangerine is in the air. Because the tangerine reaches window 1 last, its change in velocity is the greatest.
