    k is a constant called the rate or spring constant (in SI units: N/m or kg/s2).

    Hmm... But M and Kg are weight units so it might be A :o I guess ill go with A seems more legit and well stated.

    x is the displacement of the spring's end from its equilibrium position (a distance, in SI units: metres);

    Okay. Sweetie. The answer is D. The spring constant is an certain number (that's different for each spring) with specific units (Newtons per meter) that describe how hard the spring is to compress.
