Nikhil faces East finally after turning back.

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

From the given information,

Gokul was 10 kms far from his starting point.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

As per the given question,

Finally, Rohit is facing South.

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

Raghu starts from his house in his car at A and travels 8 km towards the North to B, then 6 km towards East to reach C, then 10 km towards his right towards south, 4 km towards his left in the east direction, 10 km toward north to reach F and finally 4 km towards his right to stop at point G.

$\therefore$ He is now in North-East direction with reference to the starting point.

=> Ans – (D)

Let Abhinav started from A and ran for 12 km towards east, then he turned towards north and ran 16 km in that direction to reach C.

=> $(AC)^2=(AB)^2+(BC)^2$

=> $(AC)^2=(12)^2+(16)^2$

=> $(AC)^2=144+256=400$

=> $AC=\sqrt{400}=20$ km

$\therefore$ Abhinav is 20 km from his house and in north-east direction.

=> Ans – (D)

Vikram started from point R and walked straight 7 km west to X, then turned left and walked 2 km towards south and again turned left and walked straight 4 km towards east to reach point Z.

$\therefore$ He is in south-west direction from R.

=> Ans – (B)

Let I start from point A and head north for 200 m, then turned right towards east and reached C after walking 100 m. Finally turned left towards north and stopped at point D after walking 300 m.

Thus, I started my journey in North direction.

=> Ans – (C)

Let Suresh started from point A and walked 7 km east and turned to his left walked 4 kms to reach C. He then turned to his right and walked 5 kms to point D. Finally, he again turned to his right and walked 4 kms towards south to reach point E.

$\therefore$ He is 12 km east from his starting point.

=> Ans – (A)

Let Suman starts from point A and walks 15 km towards north to reach B. She then turns right and walks another 15 km to reach C. From there, she turns right again and walks another 15 km southwards to finally reach D.

$\therefore$ She is 15 km to the east of her starting point.

=> Ans – (C)

Let they start from the same point S. Abhay (red) rides 7 km North, then turns to his left and rides 4 km to finally stop at A. In the meanwhile Chintan (black) rides 6 km West to T, then turns North and rides 7 km, then turns to his left and rides 8 km westwards to stop at C.

=> AC = $(6-4)+8=10$ km

$\therefore$ Abhay is 10 km east with respect to Chintan.

=> Ans – (D)

The route goes 4.5 km West from the starting point S. It then turns North and goes 3 kms to U, then turns East and goes 4.5 km, finally it turns left and goes 1.5 km towards north to reach the end point W.

=> SW = $3+1.5=4.5$ km

$\therefore$ The end point is 4.5 km north with respect to the start point.

=> Ans – (A)

Let the two cruisers start from the same port S. Cruiser A (red) sails 50 miles South to D, then it turns right and sails 60 miles towards west. In the meanwhile cruiser B (black) sails 105 miles West to reach T, then it turns left and sails downwards 50 miles, then it turns West and sails 45 miles to stop finally at B.

=> AB = $(105-60)+45=90$ miles

$\therefore$ Cruiser A is 90 miles east with respect to cruiser B.

=> Ans – (B)

Let Ankit starts from point S walks 17 km towards east to reach T. He turn left and walks 17 km northwards to reach B. He turns left again and walks towards west 24 km to reach point A.

=> $(AS)^2=(AR)^2+(RS)^2$

=> $(AS)^2=(17)^2+(7)^2$

=> $(AS)^2=289+49=338$

=> $AS=\sqrt{338}=13\sqrt2$ km

$\therefore$ Distance between the starting point and point A = $13\sqrt2$ km

=> Ans – (A)

Let Ganga leaves from her college at 10:00 a.m from point C. She starts walking towards north and covers a distance of 14 km to reach D. She turns right and walks 20 km to reach point K. She turns left and walk 16 km towards north. She again turns left and walks 10 km westwards to stop at point M.

=> $(KM)^2=(KL)^2+(LM)^2$

=> $(KM)^2=(10)^2+(16)^2$

=> $(KM)^2=100+256=356$

=> $KM=\sqrt{356}=2\sqrt{89}$ km

$\therefore$ She is $2\sqrt{89}$ km north-west from point K.

=> Ans – (B)

=> AE = $2-1=1$ km
$\therefore$ He is 1 km south with respect to his starting point.
