Solutions 1 to 5

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 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 reachÂ C after travelling 500 m, again she turned left and travelled for 600 m, and finally stopped at point A.

\becauseÂ 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 pointÂ F after running for 1 km.

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

=> Ans – (A)
