2 Answer

  • c theres a light house near by

  • Answer:

    C) a lighthouse on a nearby island

    Explanation:

    Rate of change in position of an object with time is known as motion

    So here ship will be in motion with respect of all that objects which will see the change in position of ship with time.

    So here we can say all those objects which are lying on the ship itself will move along with the ship so these objects will not observe the change in the position of the ship.

    While all object which are lying outside the ship can observe the change in the position of the ship

    So correct answer will be

    C) a lighthouse on a nearby island
