"from zero to sixty in 8 seconds" is a description of:

a) average speed

b) instantaneous speed

c)average acceleration

d) instantaneous acceleration

I know for sure that a) and c) aren't the right answers since average is over a long time period or the whole trip. I believe b) is the correct answer since speed is a scalar.
