We get all our clues from your Velocity graph.

Code:

e

o

d * *

o *

c * o

o f

a *

o

b

On (a,b), the velocity is negative;

the object is heading in the negative direction.

The velocity is becoming "less negative" (slowing down)

and the object comes to a stop at $\displaystyle b.$

On (b, c), the velocity is positive;

the object is moving in the positive direction

The velocity is increasing (speeding up).

On (c,d), the object has a constant velocity.

Its distance is increasing at a constant rate.

On (d, e), the object is still moving in the positive direction,

but the velocity is become "less positive" (slowing down),

and comes to a stop at $\displaystyle e.$

On (e, f), the velocity is negative;

the object is moving in the negative direction.

And the velocity is getting "more negative" (speeding up).
