Question 53

# In which direction point ‘A’ is located with respect to point ‘B’?I. A man starts walking from point ‘A’ towards east and after walking 3 metres reaches point ‘N’, he turns right and walks 7 metres to reach point ‘M’. Then he turns right and walks 6 metres to reach point ‘O’. He again turns right and walks 7 metres to reach point P. He, then, turns left and walks 2 metres to reach point ‘B’.II. A man starts walking from point ‘A’ towards east and after walking 3 metres reaches point ‘N’. From point ‘N’ he walks 7 metres towards south and reaches point ‘M’. From point he walks 6 metres towards west and reaches Point ‘O’. From point ‘O’ he walks 7 metres towards north and reaches point ‘P’. From point ‘P’ he walks towards west and reaches point ‘B’. The distance between points A and B is 5 metres.

Solution

Both statements mean the same thing :

The man starts from point A and travelled for 3 m towards east, from there he turned right towards south to reach M, and then travelled west for 6 m to reach O. Then again turned right to reach P and finally stopped at B.

Thus, point A is 5 m to the east of point B.

$$\therefore$$ Either statement alone is sufficient.
