B is the answer to this question. To solve this question, you need to know what equation should be used. The proper formula is v2 = u2 + 2as. That will be 7.1² - 0² over 2.35.4. This will be equal to 50.41/70.8. The answer to this is 0.71200565 which can be shortened to 0.712 m/s/s which is letter B in the choices.

The acceleration can always be different from one vehicle to another. There are also other factors such as the road that is being traversed and traffic that may affect the acceleration of different vehicles, items, and even things.
