Solution

The correct option is C

1.11 ms2


Initial speed u=80kmhr=80×100060×60=800m36s

Final speed v=60kmhr=60×100060×60=600m36s

Time taken t=5 s

a=vut =60080036×5=1.11ms2

Here sign of acceleration is negative which shows that the speed is decreasing and acceleration is in the opposite direction of the motion.
