Solution

## The correct option is B VelocityThe slope of a graph is equal to the ratio of change in y-axis to the change in x-axis. m=y2−y1x2−x1 For displacement-time graph, slope is: m=s2−s1t2−t1 Converting the above equation to words, we get, slope of displacement-time graph is equal to the ratio of change in displacement to change in time. But, this is also the definition of velocity. So, the slope of displacement-time graph is equal to velocity.
