    Answer:

    Displacement, d = 10 km

    Explanation:

    It is given that,

    Distance covered by the bus in east direction is 6 km and the distance covered by the bus in south direction is 8 km.

    We need to find the resultant displacement. Displacement is the shortest path covered by an object. It can be given by :

    d=\sqrt{6^2+8^2} \\\\d=\sqrt{36+64}\\ \\d=10\ km

    So, the displacement of the bus is 10 km.
