"The greater the acceleration the greater the _____ exerted on an object."  The Correct answer would be "force." 

The greater the acceleration the greater the force exerted on an object. 

The question is about the relationship force = mass x acceleration.  Since the question doesn't mention the mass of the object, it must remain constant.  The question does indicate the acceleration increases so the only remaining variable is force.  The faster a given mass accelerates the greater the force that must be exerted on it to achieve the acceleration.
