A tennis player moves back and forth along the baseline while waiting for her opponent to serve, producing the position-versus-time graph shown in the figure. (The vertical axis is marked in increments of 1 m and the horizontal axis is marked in increments of 4 s.)
(a) Without performing a calculation, indicate on which of the segments of graph, A, B, or C, the player has the smallest speed.


(b) Calculate the average speed for segment A.
m/s

(c) Calculate the average speed for segment B.
m/s

(d) Calculate the average speed for segment C.
