The kinetic energy of a particle continuously increases with time. Then we can conclude that:

 (a) The resultant force on the particle must be parallel to the velocity at all instants. (b) The resultant force on the particle must be at an angle less than $$90^{\circ}$$ all the time. (c) Its height above the ground level must continuously decrease. (d) The magnitude of its linear momentum is increasing continuously.

Choose the correct option:
1. (a) and (b)
