							(a) The direction of the yo-yo does not reverse at the bottom. When the yo-yo reaches the bottom, it maintains its angular momentum, therefore its angular velocity vector points in the same direction.
When the jerk is given by the person, the yo-yo winds to the thread again and come upwards while maintaining the same direction of rotation.
(b) The yo-yo winds again because of the friction forces between the thread and the surface of the axle. The person jerks the yo-yo when it is at the bottom so that the thread can come in contact with the axle of yo-yo, and instead of sliding over the thread, the axle start to wind up.
