Solution

The correct option is A TrueWhen a particle is moving with constant velocity then its magnitude and direction both are not changing means particle must travel in straight line. Also when the particle is moving in straight line with no acceleration then distance covered and displacement both will be the same in the same interval of time. Hence average velocity and average speed both will be same as Average velocity =(net displacement)time Average speed=(total distance)time. Instantaneous velocity will be the same as velocity is not changing anywhere. It is true.
