    Thank you for your question!

    The graph plots speed as a function of time. The object will be moving at its fastest when speed reaches its maximum value. Therefore, the maximum of the function will correspond to the object's maximum speed.

    This means that segment b represents the object moving at its fastest.

    Don't hesitate to ask if you need more help!
