The figure shows the electric lines of force emerging from a charged body. If the electric field at $$A$$ and $$B$$ are $$E_A$$ and $$E_B$$ respectively and if the displacement between $$A$$ and $$B$$ is $$r,$$ then:

1. $$E_A>E_B$$

2. $$E_A<E_B$$

3. ${E}_{A}=\frac{{E}_{B}}{r}$

4. ${E}_{A}=\frac{{E}_{B}}{{r}^{2}}$

A toy car with charge $$q$$ moves on a frictionless horizontal plane surface under the influence of a uniform electric field $$\vec E.$$Due to the force $$q\vec E,$$ its velocity increases from $$0$$ to $$6~\text{m/s}$$ in a one-second duration. At that instant, the direction of the field is reversed. The car continues to move for two more seconds under the influence of this field. The average velocity and the average speed of the toy car between $$0$$ to $$3$$ seconds are respectively:
1. $$2~\text{m/s}, ~4~\text{m/s}$$
2. $$1~\text{m/s}, ~3~\text{m/s}$$
3. $$1~\text{m/s}, ~3.5~\text{m/s}$$
4. $$1.5~\text{m/s},~ 3~\text{m/s}$$
