Solution

## The correct option is B False Here, the person is going to bed sharp at 10:00. But what about his motion, if we take his bed as the reference he might take different paths every day. Someday he might follow. (1) Bed - Bathroom - Bus stop - Office - Bus stop - Bed (2) Bed - Bathroom - Cab - Office - Restaurant - Bed So every day the path might be different, even if the path is same the velocity might be different (at the same time on different days) Example: He might go to his office every day but the speed of a bike and a car and a bus will be different. Clearly, the motion is not periodic.
