A tennis ball is released from a height h and after freely falling on a wooden floor, it rebounds and reaches height \frac{h}{2}. The velocity versus height of the ball during its motion may be represented graphically by: (graphs are drawn schematically and not to the scale)
Option: 1
Option: 2
Option: 3
Option: 4

Velocity at the ground (means zero height) is non-zero therefore the option 4 is incorrect.

The velocity versus height curve will be parabolic as for motion under gravity.

i.e The velocity versus height curve is non-linear therefore option 1 is also incorrect. 

\begin{array}{l} \mathrm{v}^{2}=2 \mathrm{gh} \\ \\ \mathrm{v} \frac{\mathrm{dv}}{\mathrm{dh}}=2 \mathrm{~g}=\mathrm{const} \\ \\\Rightarrow \frac{\mathrm{dv}}{\mathrm{dh}}=\frac{\text { constant }}{\mathrm{v}} \end{array}

Here we can see the slope is very high when velocity is low therefore at the maximum height the slope should be very large which is in option 3 and as velocity increases slope must decrease therefore option 3 is correct.
