    D. 3 seconds
    Explanation
    The standard duration a player is allowed to hold the ball in netball is 3 seconds. This means that once a player catches the ball or gains possession through interception or a rebound, they have up to 3 seconds to make a decision and either pass the ball to a teammate or attempt a shot on goal. If the player fails to release the ball within the allotted 3 seconds, possession is turned over to the opposing team, and they are awarded a free pass or a throw-in, depending on where the violation occurred.

      1.7 metres

    Correct Answer
    B. 0.9 metres
    Explanation
    When defending, it is required to be at least 0.9 metres away from the player with the ball. This distance ensures that there is enough space for the defender to react and make a play without impeding the offensive player's movement. Being too close could result in a foul or penalty, while being too far away may give the offensive player an advantage. Therefore, 0.9 metres is the minimum distance recommended for effective defensive play.
