Solution

## The correct option is D 2v1(v2+v3)2v1+v2+v3Let the total displacement of the body be 2S and let t1 be the time taken to cover the first half. During the second half, let the time of travel be 2t, so that it travels with v2 and v3 velocities in time t each. Then, average velocity =2St1+2t Here, t1=Sv1 and (v2+v3)t=S i.e t=S(v2+v3) ∴vav=2SSv1+2(Sv2+v3)=21v1+2v2+v3 =2v1(v2+v3)2v1+v2+v3
