Can displacement be 0? If yes give an example

Displacement can be zero even when distance is not zero.

For example:

Consider two points A and B such that AB = 10 m. When a car travels from A to B and then back from B to A.

Distance = 10 +10 = 20 m.

Displacement = Minimum distance between final(B) and initial position(B) = 0.
