Correct Answer - Option 1 : 0

CONCEPT:

• Velocity (v): The rate of change of displacement is called velocity.

$\vec v = \frac{{\overrightarrow {dx} }}{{dt}}$

• Acceleration (a): The rate of change of velocity is called acceleration.

a = dv/dt

CALCULATION:

Given that:

x = 2t

velcoity, v = dx/dt = 2 m/s

acceleration, a = dv/dt = 0

Hence option 1 is correct.
