Answer #1

We know the equation of motion :

  

Where, v is final velocity of the object

u is initial velocity of the object

a is acceleration of the object

S is total distance travelled by the object

Given,

u (initial velocity of the girl) = 0 (as she starts from the rest)

v (final velocity of the girl) = 3.70 m/s

S (distance travelled by the girl) = 10.2 m

Putting all the values in the equation, we get

or,   

or,

or,

Hence, the correct option is A .
