Answer the following questions on the basis of the information given below.

A car starts moving along a straight line in the North direction at t = 0 seconds. The speed–time graph for the car is given below for the first 15 seconds in which it covers a total distance of 320 metres. The bar chart given below shows the distance covered by the car in the next 15 seconds. The speed–time curve for the car is a straight line in the time intervals 0–5 seconds, 5–10 seconds, 10–15 seconds, 15–20 seconds, 20–25 seconds and 25–30 seconds.

Q1: What is the speed (in m/s) of the car at t = 15 seconds?

(a) 12 (b) 16 (c) 20 (d) 30

Q 2: What is the speed (in m/s) of the car at t = 30 seconds?

(a) 16 (b) 12 (c) 8 (d) 4

Q 3: What is the average speed (in m/s) of the car between t = 8 seconds and t = 24 seconds?
