Solution

## The correct option is D Displacement: 55 m, Acceleration: -5 m/s2D) Displacement: 55 m, Acceleration: -5 m/s2. Area under the curve in velocity time graph gives the displacement covered by the body.â€‹ Slope of the curve of velocity-time graph at a particular instant of time gives acceleration of that body.â€‹ â€‹ â€‹
