As we discussed in concept

Net work done by all the forces give the change in kinetic energy -


W= k_{f}-k_{i}

- wherein

m=mass \: of\: the\: body

v_{0}= initial\: velocity

v= final\: velocity





on putting the values



Option 1)

12m/s, 6m/s 

Option is incorrect

Option 2)

8 m/s, 10 m/s 

Option is incorrect

Option 3)

6m/s, 12m/s 

Option is correct

Option 4)

10m/s, 8m/s

Option is incorrect
