Yes the particle does stop momentarily.

Work Step by Step

At the start of the graph, the particle is moving in the negative direction. As the graph progresses, the particle passes through the x-axis and starts to move in the positive direction. On the x-axis, the velocity of the particle is zero. This means that the particle had to stop its motion, and then travel in the opposite direction.
