Solution

## The correct options are A a: m/s b: m/s2 B a: cm/s b: cm/s2Given, v = a + bt + ct2 v has the units of speed. Two quantities can be added only if they have the same units. Hence, a and bt has units of speed. Given, t is time. Hence, b has the units of speed per unit time. So, from the options, units of a can be m/s or cm/s. And, units of b can be m/s2 or cm/s2.
