Solution

## The correct option is B Motion of a body along a circular path In circular motion, the body moves in reference with a fixed point with a fixed radius hence, its magnitude remains constant. Since the body is moving circularly, its direction also changes. So, motion of a body along a circular path has constant velocity and different direction.
