physics homework help needed

The shape of the earth's orbit around the sun is essentially a circle. Assuming the earth maintains a constant speed as it orbits around the sun, which statement about the earth's motion is most correct?

Select one:

a. Its acceleration is zero since it is moving at constant speed.

b. Its acceleration is not zero but is very small.

c. Its acceleration is 9.8 m/s2.

d. Its acceleration is 1.0 m/s2.

I kinda think that the answer maybe D but i'm not to sure.
