(b). constant angular velocity

Work Step by Step

In uniform circular motion, there is constant angular velocity. Linear velocity is not constant since direction of velocity is changing. Acceleration is not zero since there is acceleration towards center. And tangential acceleration is zero otherwise the particle's speed would change. So, (b) is the correct answer.
