IMO, B is correct.
Laws cannot be the subject because "its" is singular.

Good point. I believe that "In laws of motion" is subject. Unfortunately, I don't recall what this is called (it's not a 'compound subject', which refers to something else).

"In laws of motion" is a prepositional modifier, indicated by the presence of the word "in" - that just tells us where this happens. When you see a phrase beginning with a preposition (like "of", "in", "to", "under", etc.) see if you can establish the rest of the sentence without that phrase (here you certainly can) - if you can, then it's just adding extra information but isn't imperative to the subject-predicate portion of the sentence.

Hi Brian,

So whats the verb form in this case? I thought condition is subject and IS is verb... but confusing sentence form for sure..
