The velocity of a body, moving in a plane, changes from 3î to 3î + 7ĵ in 10s. What is the acceleration of the body?
(c) 0.33î + 7ĵ
(d) 0.3î + 7ĵ

To explain I would say: The acceleration of a body is the rate at which the velocity changes with time. Here, the change in velocity is 7ĵ. The total time taken is 10s. Hence, the acceleration = change in velocity/time = 0.7ĵ.
