Can negative acceleration(retardation) also mean that a body is speeding up or is it always slowing down of a body?

Expert Answer:

Negative acceleration always indicates that the acceleration is in the direction opposite to that of the motion of the body. Hence, negative acceleration (or retardation) always means that the body is slowing down.
