1. Answer: Option c) 50 km/h

Explanation:

Distance traveled by car = 250km

Time taken = 5 hours

Average speed of the car = ?

Recall that average speed is the total distance travelled divided by the total time taken.

i.e Average speed = Distance / Time

= 250km/5 hours

= 50 Km/hr

Thus, the average speed of the car is

50 Km/hr
