Correct Answer - Option 2 : m/s

CONCEPT:

• Velocity: The rate of change of displacement of a body is called the velocity of that body.

$\Rightarrow Velocity=\frac{Displacment (x)}{Time (t)}$

• Velocity is a vector quantity that has both magnitudes as well as direction.

EXPLANATION:

• The unit of velocity is m/s and the dimension of velocity is [M0LT-1]. Therefore option 2 is correct.
