(a) The given situation is possible.

When an object is thrown upwards (under gravity only), it reaches to a maximum height where its velocity becomes zero. However, it still has an acceleration acting in the downward direction (acceleration due to gravity).

Note: This is possible for a given point of time, however, it is not possible for a period of time.
