Let the man started from point A and travelled north to reach B for 3 km, then turned west towards point C after travelling 2 km, then again travelled north for 1 km and finally stopped at point E.

Thus, $(AE)^2 = 4^2+3^2$

=> $(AE)^2=16+9=25$

=> $AE=\sqrt{25}=5$ km

=> Ans – (D)

Let Abhay started from point A and travelled north for 9 km and reached B, then turned left towards west and traveled 5 km, then again turned left and finally stopped at point D after travelling 9 km.

Thus, AD = BC = 5 km

$\therefore$ He is 5 km to the west of his starting point.

=> Ans – (A)

Let the ship started from point A and sailed 12 km south to reach B, and then turned east and finally reached C after travelling 5 km.

Thus, $(AC)^2=(AB)^2+(BC)^2$

=> $(AC)^2=(12)^2+(5)^2$

=> $(AC)^2=144+25=169$

=> $AC=\sqrt{169}=13$ km

=> Ans – (D)

Let Sunita started from point A, and travelled north to reach B, then she turned left and reached point C, again she turned left and travelled for 4 km. So, D is 2 km to the west of A.

Thus, AB = CD = 4 km

=> Ans – (C)

Let Pinky started from point A and travelled 600 m east to reach B, then she turned left to reach C after travelling 500 m, again she turned left and travelled for 600 m, and finally stopped at point A.

$\because$ Her final position and initial positions are same, thus she is 0 m from the starting point.

=> Ans – (D)

Let we start from point A, and run north for 4 km to reach B, then turn left and run for 5 km and reach C, then again turn left and run for 5 km, again a left turn for 6 km and finally stop at point F after running for 1 km.

Now, to reach the starting point, we need to run 1 km to the west.

=> Ans – (A)

Let Sohan started from point A, and travelled west for 15 km to reach B, then he turned left and walked for 20 km till he reach point C, he then turned east to walk 25 km and finally stopped at point E.

Thus, AE = 25 – 15 = 10 km

=> Ans – (C)

Let Ravi started from point A and walked east for 1 km to reach B, then he turned 45° left to reach C and finally stopped at point D after turning 90° right.

Thus, he is facing South-east direction.

=> Ans – (A)

Let Veena and Veeru both start from point A and head north to reach B after walking 10 km, then Veena turned left and walk for 5 km and Veery turned right and walk for 3 km to reach point C, then they both started walking southwards for 15 km and stopped at points F and E respectively.

Thus, EF = 5 + 3 = 8 km

=> Ans – (A)

Let Anand started from point A and travelled east for 10 km to reach his school at B, then travelled south for 5 km to reach his father’s shop at C, finally travelled west for 10 km to stop at point D.

$\therefore$ Anand is 5 km to the south of his home.

=> Ans – (B)

Distance between D and B = 10 km

C from B is 2 km more than it is from D, that means DC = 4 km and CB = 6 km

A is exactly between D and C i.e. AD = 2 km and AC = 2 km

Following figure represents all the above conclusions.

Hence CB = 6 km

=> Ans – (B)

Location of A,B,C and D can be shown as :

Hence, D is South-East of C.

=> Ans – (B)

Dimentions of cuboid will be $3cm. \times 4cm. \times 5cm$
So volume will be 60 cc.

After cutting off squares of sides 4cm. from rectangular sheet of $40 cm. \times 15 cm.$and making a rectangular box
New dimentions of rectangular will be:
Base = $32 cm. \times 7cm.$
Height = $4 cm.$
Hence volume will be $32 \times 7 \times 4$ = $896 cc$

= $(2 \times (3 \times 3) + 2\times (4 \times 3)) + 4 \times 3$
