Expert Answer:

An object is moving with negative acceleration.
 
Hence, initially it travels the maximum distance and the distance travelled in each interval of time reduces.
 
That is, the distance travelled in 2nd second will be less than that travelled in the 1st second.
 
So, the graph will be a curve as shown in the figure below:
 
 
Now, the velocity of the object goes on decreasing linearly with time as it is decelerating.
 
Its graph will be as shown below:
