A goalkeeper in a game of football pulls his hands backwards after holding the ball shot at the goal. This enables the goal keeper to
$(a)$. exert larger force on the ball
$(b)$. reduce the force exerted by the ball on hands
$(c)$. increase the rate of change of momentum
$(d)$. decrease the rate of change of momentum
