And what do you need? Most of these cannot be answered. They are examples of major constructs which are misleading.

Take the last for instance. Displacement depends on initial velocity and acceleration. If the initial veloicty were high, but acceleration was low negative, then likely displacement would be positive. If intial velocity was zero, or negative, with negative acceleration, then displacement would be negative.
Most of these are in this category. I hope this is not an example of the teaching or tests you regularily get.
