The position time (x - t) graphs for two children A and B returning from their school O to their homes P and Q, respectively are shown, Choose the correct entries:

(a) (A/B) lives closer to the school than (B/A).

(b) (A/B) starts from the school earlier than (B/A).

© (A/B) walks faster than (B/A).

(d) A and B reach home at the (same/different) time.

(e) (A/B) overtakes (B/A) on the road (once/twice).

(a) A lives closer to the school than B because B has

to cover higher distance [OP < OQ].

(b) A starts from the school earlier than B because t = 0

for A but B has some finite value.

© B walks fasterthanAbecaUseitcoversmore distance

in less duration of time [slope of B is greater than that of A].

(d) A and B reach home at the same time.

(e) B overtakes A on the road once (at x, i.e., the point

of intersection).
