Solution

## The correct option is C 3 m/s due eastThis is a one dimensional motion since it is only along the east-west direction. So, let us choose the east direction as positive and the west as negative. Now, given that →vS= Velocity of Seeta =1^i m/s And −→vG= Velocity of Geeta =−2^i m/s Thus, −−→vSG= Velocity of Seeta with respect to Geeta −−→vSG=→vS−→vG=1^i−(−2)^i=3^i m/s
