Answer

positive

Work Step by Step

At point 4 on the graph, we see that the acceleration is 0. We know that the integral of the acceleration will give us velocity. If we look between $t=0$ and $t=4$, we see that we have only positive area (area above the x-axis) and therefore the velocity will be positive as well.
