Two cars travel on the parallel lanes of a twolane road. The cars’ motions are represented by the position versus time graph shown in the figure. Answer the questions using the times from the graph indicated by letters.
At which of the times do the two cars pass each other? ( can someone please explain what the question is asking)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I assume the xaxis (the horizontal axis) is time? and the vertical axis is position?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If so, the graph limits the cars to position along the yaxis. They can move up the axis or down the axis. When they meet at time labeled D, we see car 1 is moving down the axis (smaller y values) and car 2 is still going up. So they are moving in opposite directions
