I know how to find the distance he covered, but I don't know how to find the displacement I know it's either 1 or 2

 

distance he covered = 3

The question should have stated where the displacement they wanted was from.

But it is fair to assume that they meant from the starting point.

 

The distance travelled is 3 km

BUT

He has finished 1 km due south of where he started so the (absolute value of the)  displacement is 1.      laugh
