Instructions

Study the given information carefully to answer the given questions. Point M is 15m to the east of Point L. Point C is 3m to the north of Point M. Point Q is 6m to the east of Point C. Point P is 3m to the south of Point Q. Point V is to the north of Point L. A person walks 9m from Point V towards south, reaches Point R, takes a left turn and reaches Point C.

Question 77

# If a person walks 15m towards east from Point V, takes a right turn and walks 4m, how far will he be from Point M ?

Solution

Point V is to the north of point L. If a person walk 9m towards south from point V, he reaches R, and after that if he turns left, he reaches C

=> R is to the north of L at a distance of 3m.

Distance between R & C is 15m.

Distance between C and Q is 6m, similarly distance between M & P is 6m.

Based on the above condition and plotting the points on a graph, the directions will be :

where the numbers in the brackets represnts the distance between two points.

If a person walks 15m towards east from V, he will be at north from C. After that, if he takes a right turn and walks 4m.

The distance between C and the new position of that person = 9-4 = 5

Distance from M = 5+3 = 8m

Thus, Ans - (E)
