    The axis of rotation is not located at the middle of the disc. This can be seen from the fact that the velocities are not perpendicular to a line drawn from the centre of the disc. Use the fact that the speeds are tangential to the circular paths that A and B follow about the axis of rotation to locate the position of the axis of rotation.
