Expert Answer:

Let d be the distance from point A and point B.
 
Displacement is the difference between ending position and starting position.
Since car came back to its starting point-A , displacement is zero.
 
Actual travel distance is ( 2 × d ) , because from point A to point B car has travelled a distance d ,
then from point B to point A , again the car has travelled a distance d .
 
Hence distance is ( 2 × d )
