C. The final kinetic energy is equal to the initial potential energy.

Explanation:

Based on the Principle of energy conservation:

Sum of the Initial Energy = Sum of the Final Energy

Initial Kinetic Energy + Initial Potential Energy = Final Kinetic Energy + Final Potential Energy……….(1)

Since according to the question:

Initial Kinetic Energy = 0

Final Potential Energy = 0

The equation (1) above reduces to

Initial Potential Energy = Final Kinetic Energy
