The passenger is in motion relative to the passer-by

The passer-by is stationary relative to the passenger

Both observers are in motion relative to each other

The passer-by is in motion relative to the passenger

2 Which of the following statements is not correct about reference frames?

Laws of physics are invariant in inertial reference frames

In non-inertial reference frames the motion of objects depend only on the interactions of constituent particles among themselves

Any reference frame moving at constant velocity with respect to an inerial reference frame is also inertial

If the coordinate axes of a reference frame attached to an object remain fixed in space then the object is at rest
