If we know that a nonzero net force is acting on an object, which of the following must we assume regarding the object's condition?

Assuming we're working in an inertial frame of reference, Newton's Laws tell us that an unbalanced force will cause the object to accelerate.
According to the Second Law, F = ma, so if the net force is non-zero, the acceleration must be non-zero.
