**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

Let the shopper in starts from the starting point and walks 30 m through an alley which is going South, then he turns to his right and walks 10 m towards west, then he turns North and walks another 10 m, then he turns West and walks 45 m and finally he turns North and walks 20 m.

=> Distance = $10+45=55$ m

$\therefore$ He is now **55 m west **with reference to his starting position.

=> Ans – (B)

**2) Answer (D)**

All of them are facing south, and Gaurav is second to the right of Akash who is at one of the end, => Akash is at the left end (facing south).

Prem is at fourth position to the left of Raman, => Raman is at the rightmost end.

Jatin and Nitin sit together, which is quite clear but any of them can sit at second or third place.

Thus, final arrangement is :

$\therefore$ We cannot determine as to how many boys are sitting to the left of Nitin.

=> Ans – (D)

**3) Answer (D)**

Let the street vendor pushes his cart from point A for 2 km South to reach B, then he turns East and walks 2.5 km to point C, then he turns North and walks 1 km to reach D, finally he turns to his left and walks 2.5 km towards west to reach E.

=> AE = $2-1=1$ km

$\therefore$ He is **1 km south** with respect to his starting point.

=> Ans – (D)

**4) Answer (D)**

Let the student starts from point A and cycles 2 km North to reach B, then turns West and cycles 2.5 km to point C, then turns South and cycles 2 km, then turns to his left and cycles 4.5 km towards east to stop at point E.

=> AE = $4.5-2.5=2$ km

$\therefore$ He is **2 km east** with respect to the starting position.

=> Ans – (D)

**5) Answer (D)**

Let the two aeroplanes start from the same strip S. Aeroplane P (red) flies 65 miles North to reach T, then turns left and flies 45 miles and lands at point U. In the meanwhile aeroplane Q (black) flies 80 miles West to R, then flies 40 miles South, and finally turns to its left, flies 35 miles towards east and lands at point P.

=> PU = $40+65=105$ miles

$\therefore$ Aeroplane Q is **105 miles south **with respect to aeroplane P.

=> Ans – (D)

**6) Answer (B)**

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)

**7) Answer (C)**

Let the two lady cyclists A and B start from the same point S. A (red) cycles 3.5 km West to reach E, then turns to her right and cycles 7 km northwards. B (black) cycles 1 km East to reach D, then turns North and cycles 7 km to point C, then turns to her left and cycles 2 km towards west.

=> AB = $(3.5+1)-2=2.5$ km

$\therefore$ B is **2.5 km east **with respect to A now.

=> Ans – (C)

**8) Answer (A)**

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)

**9) Answer (B)**

Let the two horse drawn wagons start from the same farm S. Wagon X (red) travels South 4.5 km to W and then turns right and travels 7.5 km towards west. In the mean while wagon Y (black) travels 9 km North, then 3.5 km West to reach U, then 2 km North , finally it turns left and travels 4 km westwards to stop at point Y.

=> XY = $4.5+9+2=15.5$ km

$\therefore$ Wagon Y is **15.5 km north **with respect to wagon X.

=> Ans – (B)

**10) Answer (C)**

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)

**11) Answer (B)**

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)

**12) Answer (B)**

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)

**13) Answer (D)**

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

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)

**15) Answer (C)**

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)

**16) Answer (C)**

Parul cycles 3 km East from the starting point, then turns South and cycles 1 km, then turns West and cycles 2.5 km, then she turns to her right and cycles 1 km towards north to reach the end.

=> Distance = $3-2.5=0.5$ km

$\therefore$ Now she is **0.5 km east **with reference to her starting position.

=> Ans – (C)

**17) Answer (B)**

Let the hiker starts from point A and walks 2 km South to reach B, then he turns West and walks for 4 km, then he turns North and walks for 5 km to point D, then he turns to his right and walks for 4 km to finally stop at E.
