The correct answer is (a) 10 units

Explanation: The displacement is the distance between the final and the initial location. Here the final location is C and the initial is A. We can solve this by using distance between two points method. AC = Square root ((8^2 – 0^2) + (6^2 – 0^2)) = Square root (100) = 10 units.
