**Question: Which of the following is true for ****displacement****? **

**(a) It cannot be zero**

**(b) Its magnitude is greater than the distance**

**-Shresthi Goyal, Subject Matter Expert at Edumarz**

**Answer: **

**(a) **When the initial point coincides with the final point, the displacement becomes Zero.

Or we may say, when the shortest distance between the initial point and the final point becomes zero, displacement becomes zero. So, this statement is true.

**(b**) Displacement can never be greater than distance. Displacement is the shortest distance between the initial point and the final point.

This is the fact that Displacement can be less than or equal to the distance traveled but can never be greater than the distance.

So, this statement is false.
