Ok, her position changed over time since the road is curved.

The velocity changed since the direction is changing

AccelerTion: theres a change in velocity since the direction changes

Direction: changed over time

Displacement : difference between 1st and final position

Distance 10 m/s and displacement : 9 m/s

Actualy the distance is speed x time

That is ok, except for distance and displacement. distance is 5*60sec*10m/s=3000m. Displacement you have no idea because of the curves.
