Solution

## The correct option is A Impulse of reformation is equal to the impulse of deformation.Coefficient of restitution is defined as the ratio of impulse of reformation and impulse of deformation, for either of the colliding body. e=Impulse of reformationImpulse of deformation=Speed of separationSpeed of approach ⇒0 <e <1, hence Impulse of reformation will not be equal to Impulse of deformation. Total mechanical energy is not conserved as some part of kinetic energy is converted as elastic potential energy during deformation. ∴ Option (a) is incorrect.
