The displacement-time plot is attached as a jpg file.

In this plot, generally, displacement is drawn along the y-axis and time along the x-axis.

I have used excel to plot it. You can use any spreadsheet program for this purpose. There are a large number of openware plotting/graphing softwares as well for this purpose.

hope this helps.

The time period as we see is in regular intervals with a difference "2"

The table is given as follows :

time in seconds                displacement in meters

0                                             0

2                                             8

4                                             16

6                                              16

8                                               0

10                                              0

To sketch the Displacement- time graph , 

First we need to fix the time intervals to the x- axis , and the Displacement in meters to y- axis  as Time  is always taken on the x-axis so the displacement has to be on the y-axis.

Now , the plotting of the Displacement -Time graph can be done online or in excel . using this link given below , it is easy to plot . The graph plotted is also given below
