The correct answer is (d) Newton’s first law of motion

To explain I would say: According to Newton’s first law of motion, every body continues in its state of rest or uniform motion unless an external force acts upon it. This inability of a body to change its state of rest or of uniform motion along a straight path is called inertia of a body. Hence the first law of motion is also called a law of inertia.
