Expert Answer:

Distance travelled is actual distance covered during travelling from starting point to ending point.
displacement is shortest distance between starting point and ending point.
 
(a) distance / displacement = πR /(2R) = π/2
 
(b) & (d) point C is not given, so we are not able to answer
 
(c) distance /displacement = 2πR / 0 = infinity
