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.

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)

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 Sunder started from point A and head north for 5 km to reach B, then turn east and travelled for 6 km to reach C, and finally stopped at point D after walking 5 km towards south.

=> Ans – (B)

Let Rohini starts from point A and walks 10 km north to reach B and turns right and walks 10 km to reach C and then turns left to walk 10 km and finally turns right eastwards and walks 10 km more to stop at point E.

Thus, AE = $\sqrt{(20)^2+(20)^2}$

= $\sqrt{400+400}=\sqrt{800}=20\sqrt2$ km

=> Ans – (C)

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 P starts from point S and walks 15 km towards east to reach T. He turns right and walks 10 km to point U. He again turns right and walks 15 km towards west to stop at point V.

$\therefore$ He is 10 km south from his starting point.

=> Ans – (B)

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)

Let Akash starts walking from S towards south and covers a distance of 20 km to reach T. He turns left and walks 15 km to reach point A. He turns right and walk 14 km towards south to B. He again turns right and walks 10 km westwards to stop at C.

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

=> $(AC)^2=(14)^2+(10)^2$

=> $(AC)^2=196+100=296$

=> $AC=\sqrt{296}=2\sqrt{74}$ km

$\therefore$ He is $2\sqrt{74}$ km south-west from point.

=> Ans – (C)

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 brother and sister leave home from point O. The brother (red) goes 0.5 km East to A, then turns right and goes 3.5 km and reaches his school B. The sister (black) goes 2.5 km North, then 1 km West to point R, then turns left and goes 6 km  southwards and reaches her school S.

=> BS = $1+0.5=1.5$ km

$\therefore$ Brother’s school is 1.5 km east with respect to the sister’s school.

=> Ans – (D)

Chand and Dhyan start from the same point S. Chand (black) walks 105 m North to A, then turns East and walks 55 m to reach B, then turns to his right and walks 75 m southwards to point C. At the same time, Dhyan (red) walks 45 m South, then turns to his left and walks 55 m eastwards to reach point D.

=> CD = $(105-75)+45=75$ m

$\therefore$ Chand is 75 m north with respect to the position of Dhyan.

=> Ans – (B)

From a hospital S, Pritam walked 49 metres to the south to T, then after turning to right he walked 49 metres westwards to point U. He again turned right and walked another 34 metres to reach V and ﬁnally turned to right and walked 49 metres to stop at point W.

=> SW = $49-34=15$ km

$\therefore$ He is 15 m south from the hospital S now.

=> Ans – (C)

=> PU = $40+65=105$ miles
$\therefore$ Aeroplane Q is 105 miles south with respect to aeroplane P.
