Correct Answer - Option 2 : constant speed

The correct answer is a constant speed.

• We know that Distance Travelled by an object = Speed x Time
• In order to replace the sign of equality with proportionality, either time or speed must be constant.
• Here, it is given that the distance travelled is directly proportional to time, hence the speed of the object must be constant.
• This type of motion is also called uniform motion.
