We know that: i) slope of the position time graph at any given instant represents the velocity of the object at that instant, ii) the magnitude of the slope represents the speed and sign (+ or -) represents the direction of motion (i.e. +ve slope implies object is moving towards right and -ve slope implies object is moving towards left).
a) As the woman stood still (at the starting point), her displacement with respect to the starting point (origin) is zero. Hence, for the duration a, x = 0. This is plotted on the graph here under.
