Solution

## The correct option is B a null vector.In case of uniform circular motion of a particle, direction of acceleration vector changes from point to point, but magnitude remains same. Now, vector sum of vectors having same magnitude and distributed in all possible directions is zero. Hence, the average acceleration vector taken over a full circle is a null vector.
