What is a minute hand on a clock?

The minute hand is the largest hand on most analogue clocks. At 3 o'clock on a 12-hour clock, the minute hand is pointing straight up to the 12. It measures time to the nearest minute by advancing one of the small minute hash marks every 60 seconds. Every time the second hand makes one full sweep of the clock face, the minute hand advances one of the minute marks. The second hand is the fastest moving hand on a standard analogue clock, making one full sweep every 60 seconds.

Can displacement of an object which has moved through a distance be zero if yes suppot your answer?

The answer is yes. An example which will support my contention is that of the tip of the minute-hand on an old-fashioned 'analog' clock. In the course of one hour's time, the tip of the minute hand traverses a distance equal to the circumference of the clock-face, but its displacement over the period of an hour is zero.
