Here, the external force on the system of man+trolley is zero along horizotnal direction.

There fore conservation of LINEAR MOMENTUM is applicable.

(M+m)(0) = (M)(V) + (m)(V-u).   M, m -> mass of the trolley & man. V,u -> vel of trolley wrt ground &man wrt the trolley.

=> V = mu/(m+M) = 0.2m/s.

vel of the man wrt ground = V-u = 0.2 -1 = -0.8m/s.

The position of the man wrt the initial position is (-0.8 * 4) = -3.2m.

here , it is assumed that the man is moving towars left, so we got -ve displacemnt of the man.
