It is not possible because the average velocity is equal to the displacement in a given time interval, ie: V = (displacement) / (time interval) As the zero displacement average speed will also be zero.

When the object, whose location is being measured, is at the reference point for measuring displacement.

Work is equal to the product of the applied force and the displacement. Since the displacement is zero, the work is also equal to zero.

Average velocity is zero if the displacement is zero. Average velocity = Displacement/Time = 0/Time = 0.

If the distance is measured from a point other than the initial position of the object.

-- Negative work is the result of force and displacement in opposite directions. -- Zero work is the result of either force perpendicular to displacement, or zero force, or zero displacement.

Distance is greater , because displacement can be zero ,but, distance cannot be zero.

when the body moves circularly from a point 'A' to a then the displacement will be zero(displacement is the shortest diatance from the initial point to final point) and the distance will not be zero.

Displacement of a straight line is zero...

no

The distance travelled by a particle cannot be zero when displacement is not zero because unlike distance which is a scalar, displacement is a vector quantity implying that it has both direction and magnitude.
