Regarding the proposed duplicate: Thought the proposed duplicate has a similar titIe, I have read those answers and this question requires a different answer.
We know satellites orbit around Earth, Moon or, any other celestial body. Is the orbital motion of a satellite (relative to earth), translational or rotational, when initially they are not given any additional spin? Further, do satellites need to use their Reaction Wheels in order to maintain a proper orientation (for example, the same side (communication arrays, cameras, etc.) facing Earth, Moon, or any other celestial body), if they had proper orientation at the time of satellite separation from the rocket after launch and they were not given any additional spin (also please neglect additional torques due to atmospheric drag, solar pressure, etc.)?
If we consider a satellite without active station-keeping system and assume that it was not given any additional spin after satellite separation from the launch vehicle, and neglecting any other torques (atmospheric drag, solar pressure, collision with orbital debris, etc.), will their same side face the earth?
Simply my doubt is, Which of the following a satellite with no active orientation-maintaining system undergoes, under the constraint no other torques act on it, and initially, it was not given any additional spin?

Image Description: The yellow coloured thing is a satellite bus. Blue ones are solar arrays. Grey one is a communication array (Sorry for not drawing the receiver, it might look like a rocket nozzle!).
