Rotating the above diagram by $180^\circ$.

Then, West becomes East.

The below diagram can be drawn using below statements.

The shortest distance between his home and his office $= \sqrt{12^2 + 5^2} = \sqrt{144+25} = \sqrt{169} = 13 m$

The below diagram can be drawn using given statements.

Here, A can be West or North-West or South-West to D. Hence, Option D is correct answer.

Rotating above figure by $90^\circ$

Hence, East becomes North.

From the figure we can say that he is northeast to his house.

From the figure we can say that shortest distance=$\sqrt{10^{2}+2^{2}}$=$\sqrt{104}$

From the figure we can say that he is northeast to his house.

From the figure we can say that shortest distance=$\sqrt{8^{2}+4^{2}}$=$\sqrt{80}$

From the figure we have his direction as north.

From figure we have the shortest distance as $\sqrt{16^{2}+6^{2}}$=$\sqrt{292}$
=$2\sqrt{73}$m

From the figure we have the shortest distance as $\sqrt{15^{2}+5^{2}}$=$5\sqrt{10}$

From the figure we have his direction as east.

From the figure we have shortest distance as 30-4=26m.

From figure we have the shortest distance as $\sqrt{30^{2}+16^{2}}$=$\sqrt{1156}$
=34m

Since the question asks only for the direction, the distance travelled is immaterial.
The given statements can be expressed diagrammatically as given below.

As we can see, Karthick must have been facing the South initially. Therefore, option B is the right answer.

Since the question asks only for the direction, the distance travelled is immaterial.
The given statements can be expressed diagrammatically as given below.

As we can see, Flint must have been facing the North initially. Therefore, option A is the right answer.

The given statements can be expressed diagrammatically as follows:

Total distance travelled horizontally= $12+40+8$ = $60$ m.
Total distance travelled vertically = $-25+60-10$ = $25$m.
Distance from the starting point can be found using the Pythagoras theorem.

Distance from the starting point = $\sqrt{60^2 + 25^2}$
= $\sqrt{3600 + 625}$
= $\sqrt{4225}$
= $65$ m.

Therefore, option D is the right answer.

The given statements can be expressed diagrammatically as follows:

We have to calculate the distance between the Temple and the house. Therefore, the distance travelled before reaching the temple is immaterial and we have to treat the temple as the starting point.

Total distance travelled horizontally= $100 – 20$ = $80$ m.
Total distance travelled vertically = $60$ m.
Distance from the starting point can be found using the Pythagoras theorem.

Distance from the starting point = $\sqrt{80^2 + 60^2}$
= $\sqrt{6400 + 3600}$
= $\sqrt{10000}$
= $100$ m.

Therefore, option C is the right answer.

The given statements can be expressed diagrammatically as follows:

Total distance travelled towards the East = $20 + 4$ = $24$ m.
Total distance travelled towards the North = $-3 + 10$ = $7$ m.
Distance from the starting point can be found using the Pythagoras theorem.

Distance from the starting point = $\sqrt{24^2 + 7^2}$
= $\sqrt{576 + 49}$
= $\sqrt{625}$
= $25$ m.

Therefore, option B is the right answer.

$\sqrt{(24-9)^2 + (8)^2} = \sqrt{289}$ = 17 km
