    B

    Explanation:

    The application of conservation of momentum requires the ball to be tossed at a certain speed for the recoil to exist. Since he never tossed the ball, the ball did not gain any velocity nor did it detach from the initial system of person + skateboard + ball. Hence, the recoil is zero.
