E) The average velocity of the car is 90.0 miles per hour in the direction of motion.

Explanation:

Given;

distance covered by the car, d = 90 miles

time taken, t = 60 minutes = 1 hour

The average velocity of the car is given by change in displacement per change in time;

V = Δd / Δt Therefore, the average velocity of the car is 90.0 miles per hour in the direction of motion.
