# Direction Sense Questions for IBPS RRB and IBPS PO Prelims

Question 1:Â In a row of children facing NORTH Ritesh is twelfth from the left end .Sudhir who is twenty second from right end is fourth to the right of Ritesh . Total how many children are there in the row?

a)Â 35

b)Â 36

c)Â 37

d)Â 34

e)Â None of these

Solution:

Ritesh is 12th from the left end. Sudhir is fourth to the right of Ritesh. Hence, SudhirÂ is 16th from the left end. And also Sudhir is 22nd from the right end. There are 11 people to the left of Ritesh, 21 people to the right of Sudhir and 3 people in between Ritesh and Sudhir. The total number of children’s in the row is: 11 + 3 + 21 + 2(including both Ritesh and Sudhir) = 37. Hence, option C is correct.

Question 2:Â Vikas walked 9 kmÂ towards North, took a left turn and walked 5 km and again took a left turn and walked 9 km and stopped walking. Towards which direction was he facing when he stopped walking?

a)Â South

b)Â South-West

c)Â South-East

d)Â Cannot be determined

e)Â None of these

Solution:

Let Vikas started from point A and head north for 9 km to reach B, then he turned left and travelled west for 5 km before reaching C, again he turned left and travelled for 9 km and finally stopped at point D.

Thus, he is facing south direction when he stopped walking.

=> Ans – (A)

Question 3:Â In a row of children facing North, Ritesh is twelfth from the left end. Sudhir who is twenty-second from the right end is fourth to the right of Ritesh. Total how many children are there in the row ?

a)Â 35

b)Â 36

c)Â 37

d)Â 34

e)Â None of these

Solution:

Ritesh’s position from left end = 12th

Sudhir is fourth to the right of Ritesh, => Sudhir’s position from left end = 12 + 4 = 16th

Also, Sudhir’s position from right end = 22nd

=> Total number of children in the row = 16 + 22 – 1

= 37

Question 4:Â Veena walked 5 m towards north, took a left turn and walked 7 m. She took a left turn again and walked 8 m before taking a left turn and walking 7 m. She then took a final left turn and walked 1 m before stopping. How far is Veena from the starting point?

a)Â 3m

b)Â 6 m

c)Â 4 m

d)Â 2 m

e)Â 7 m

Solution:

Let Veena started from pointÂ A, walked 5 m towards north and reached point B.

Then he took a left turn and reached point C after walking 7 m and then after point D after another left turn of 8 m.

His final position is point F.

Thus, distance AF = 8 – 5 – 1 = 2 m

=> Ans – (D)

Question 5:Â A person starts from his house and moves towards the market. He walks 40 metres towards south and takes a right turn. After walking 30 metres he takes a left turn and walks 20 metres.

Instructions

Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:
R is 15m west of Q. J is 6m north of Q. W is 2m west of J. L is 10m south of W. K is 6m west of L.

Question 11:Â In which direction is R with respect to J?

a)Â West

b)Â South east

c)Â North east

d)Â North

e)Â South west

Solution:

L is 10 m south of W, => WZ = 6m and ZL = 4 m

Similarly, Since, KL = 6 m, => RY = 7 m

and WJ = ZQ = 2 m

Clearly, R is in south west direction with respect to J.

=> Ans – (E)

Question 12:Â Kabir walks 10m towards south from Point J, takes a right turn and walks for 3m. How far will he be from Point K?

a)Â 4 m

b)Â 10 m

c)Â 5 m

d)Â 6 m

e)Â 9 m

Solution:

L is 10 m south of W, => WZ = 6m and ZL = 4 m

Similarly, Since, KL = 6 m, => RY = 7 m

and WJ = ZQ = 2 m

Kabir walks 10 m south of J, => he is 2 m to the east of L.

Then he takes right turn and walks 3 m, => he is 1 m to the west of L.

Distance between Kabir and point K = 6 – 1 = 5 m

=> Ans – (C)

Question 13:Â If F is 4m to the south of R and V is 2m east of K, how far is Point F from Point V?

a)Â 8m

b)Â 10 m

c)Â 5m

d)Â 9m

e)Â 4m

Solution:

L is 10 m south of W, => WZ = 6m and ZL = 4 m

Similarly, Since, KL = 6 m, => RY = 7 m

and WJ = ZQ = 2 m

If F is 4 m to the south of R, => F is 7 m to the west of K.

and V is 2 m to the east of K.

=> Distance between V and K = 7 + 2 = 9 m

=> Ans – (D)

Instructions

Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below :

Point A is 14m east of Point B. Point C is 6m south of Point A. Point P is 4m west of Point C. Point

Question 14:Â In a certain code language, â€˜give me callâ€™ is coded as â€˜Jo kl mxâ€™ and â€˜call for meâ€™ is coded as â€˜mx Jo stâ€™. How will â€˜forâ€™ be coded as in the given code language? (Note : all codes are two letter codes only)

a)Â Either â€˜mxâ€˜ or â€˜Joâ€™

b)Â Either â€˜Joâ€™ or â€˜kjâ€˜

c)Â kJ

d)Â mx

e)Â st

Solution:

â€˜give me callâ€™ is coded as â€˜Jo kl mxâ€™

â€˜call for meâ€™ is coded as â€˜mx Jo stâ€™

There are 2 common words that is ‘call’ and ‘me’ coded as ‘jo’ or ‘mx’ interchangeably.

Thus, code of ‘for’ = ‘st’

=> Ans – (E)

Question 15:Â Four of the following five are alike in a certain way (based on their positions of alphabet in the English alphabetical series) and hence form a group. Which is the one that does not belong to that group?

a)Â RQT

b)Â NPL

c)Â FHD

d)Â KMI

e)Â WYU

Solution:

The pattern here followed isÂ : $(x) , (x+2) , (x-2)$, where $x$ is any alphabet.

NPL -> N+2 = P and N-2 = L, => NPL

Similar pattern is followed by FHD, KMI, WYU.

But in RQT, -> R+2 = T and R-2 = P.

It should be RTP. Hence it is the odd one

=> Ans – (A)

Point A is 14m east of Point B and point C is 6m south of Point A.

P is 4 m west of C and C is the mid point of P and H.

=> H is 4 m east of point C.

Also, O is 6 m south of H.

If A is 2 m north of point L, => L is 4 m north of point C.

R is 4 m west of point O, => R is 6 m south of C.

Distance between L and R = 6 + 4 = 10 m

=> Ans – (A)

e)Â 7 m

Solution:

Point A is 14m east of Point B and point C is 6m south of Point A.

P is 4 m west of C and C is the mid point of P and H.

=> H is 4 m east of point C.

Also, O is 6 m south of H.

10 m north of point H and then left turn of 4 m is same as left of point H and then 10 m north from there.

Distance from C = 10 m

=> Ans – (B)
