**Q.**

Why is displacement referred to as a vector quantity?

**Q.**A boy moves along a circular path of perimeter 30 m and comes back to the point where he started the journey. What is the distance covered and the displacement of the boy?

- Distance = 30 m

Displacement = 30 m - Distance = 0 m

Displacement = 30 m - Distance = 30 m

Displacement = 0 m - Distance = 0 m

Displacement = 0 m

**Q.**
