Choice D.

Work Step by Step

The negative acceleration means that the velocity will become more and more negative, so the object will slow to a stop at v = 0. Since the acceleration is constant, the object is at rest for only a moment before continuing to move toward the left, with the velocity becoming more and more negative (i.e., it moves faster and faster in the negative direction).
