The answer is c. Moves toward A with an increasing speed

Work Step by Step

A positive charge will move towards the end with negative potential, as that will decrease the potential energy. As the proton loses more and more potential energy, it gains more and more kinetic energy, therefore speeding up as it moves toward A.
