Step 1

Simple harmonic motion is described as,

Step 2

Acceleration is a function of sine. Whereas, velocity is a function of cosine. When sine is maximum, cosine is minimum. Therefore, only 4th statement is true.

Step 3

Velocity can be zero when cosine term is zero. Acceleration is zero at t = 0. Acceleration and velocity can never be zero at the same time since they are different ...
