Solution

(i) OA represents uniform acceleration
(ii) AB represents constant speed.
(iii) BC represents uniform retardation.
(iv) Acceleration of car from O to A = slope of line OA

`a = ((40-0))/((10-0))
   = 4  "m/s"^2`
(v) Acceleration of car from A to B is zero as it has uniform speed .
(vi) Retardation of car from B to C = slope of line BC

  `a = ((40-0))/((50-30)) "m/s"^2`
  = `2  "m/s"^2`
