When Velocity of particle equals average velocity equals instantaneous equals speed is possible?

When the length of the time is decreased more and more ,average velocity of the particles equals instantaneous velocity.

What is the average velocity of the particle from rest to 15 seconds?

To find average velocity, you need to know the displacement. If you knew displacement, average velocity would be found by: V = Displacement / time

How is it possible for a car to have an average velocity of zero and an average speed of 65 mph?

If the car has an average speed of 65 mph, when it returns to its starting point, it will have a displacement of zero and an average velocity of zero, because velocity has both speed and direction.
