Dear Chanchal

aA=2i

aB=4j

rel acceleration = aB - aA= 4j-2i

magnitude=√42+22=√20 m/s2

direction=tan-1(4/2)=tan-12=63.430 from west towards north

All the best.

accleration of car A is a = 2i              (due to east)

accleration of car B is b =4j              (due to north)

accleration of B wrt A is arel = a-b

 arel = 2i - 4j

 a = (22+42)1/2 = 2(sqrt5)m/s2 in magnitude
