The answer to this is letter C. 20 units and 4 units. The vector is known to be a quantity that comes with its own direction. The vector may be commonly found in physics but there are also times when it is used for mathematical equations and compositions. This is meant to determine the position of the point from a certain amount of space.

Take note that vector can also be considered as a verb. When used as a verb, the vector signifies a direct flight towards a certain point. It is still somewhat similar to the vector that is used in mathematics and physics.
