Hint: Velocity-time graphs are used to describe the motion of objects that are moving in a straight line. They can be used to show acceleration and perform displacement work.In the velocity-time graph, any area enclosed will be the product of velocity and time.

Complete solution:
As we know that the unit of
${\text{velocity,V = }}\dfrac{{\text{m}}}{{{\text{sec}}}}$
${\text{time, t = sec}}$
$\Rightarrow$ SI unit of $v \times t$
$\Rightarrow \dfrac{{{\text{metre}}}}{{{\text{sec}}}} \times \sec$
$\therefore {\text{ SI unit is metre}}$
Thus, velocity time graph gives the displacement
Hence ,the area enclosed in the velocity time graph is the displacement.
Which is the Area enclosed under the velocity-time graph .

So option B is correct.
