**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Based on the given information, the following diagram could be derivedAccording to the above diagram, the direction Srishanth finally facing is East.

**2)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Consider the following figure:

Here, the required distance is the hypotenuse of the triangle with the base as 7 km and height as 24km (26-2).

The smallest distance is shown by the dotted line which is $\sqrt{7^2 + 24^2} =25$ km

Hence, 25km is the correct answer

**3)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

The path travelled is as shown in the figure.If the initial direction is west, then the final direction is south as shown.

**4)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Ajay starts from his home and heads east. He walks for 3 km and then takes a left turn. After walking for another 2 km, he takes a right turn. He walks for another 3 km and then takes another left. He walks for 2 more km before coming to a halt. We can represent this situation in the form of the following figure.The shortest distance between H and F will be given by

$6^2 + 4^2 = \sqrt{52} = 2\sqrt{13}$

Hence the correct answer is option B.

**5)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The person proceeds 15 m in West Direction.

Turning left means, he would be facing South.

He moves 15 m in South Direction.

Therefore, the person is in South-West direction of the initial position

Hence, the Option B is the answer

**6)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

The points A, B and C are as shown in the figure below.The points A, B and C form a right angled triangle.

Applying Pythagoras theorem we get,

$AC^2=AB^2+BC^2$

$=>AC^2=8^2+15^2$

$=>AC^2=289$

$=>AC=17$ km

**7)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

The following figure illustrates his trajectory-

Thus, he is finally facing the North Direction and is $\sqrt{8^2 + 6^2} = 10$ km away from his home.

**8)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Based on the given information, the following diagram could be derive55The distance between starting and ending points = $\sqrt{20^2 + (15+6)^2}$ = 29 km.

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Lohitâ€™s path can be drawn as shown in the figure

Initially, he is facing the north and walking towards the south.

Then, he takes a right and walks east facing east.

Then, he takes a right and faces the south and walks towards the north.

Hence, B is the correct answer.

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Mohan starts from his home and heads north. He walks for 3 km and then takes a left turn. He walks for another 2 km and then takes a right turn. He walks for 1 km and then takes a left turn. He walks for another 1 km

We can represent this information in the following diagram.Hence the shortest distance between the initial and final positions can be obtained by using Pythagoras theorem. This distance is given by

d = $\sqrt{4^2 + 3^2} = \sqrt{25} = 5 km$

Hence option C is the correct answer.

**11)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Pankaj starts from his home and heads west. He walks for 4 km and then takes a right turn. He walks for another 3 km and then takes a left turn. He walks for another 2 km and then takes a right turn. He stops after walking for another 3 km. This situation can be represented through the following diagram.The shortest distance between his initial and final positions can be obtained by using the Pythagoras theorem. This, distance is given by

D = $\sqrt{6^2 + 6^2} = 6\sqrt{2}$

Thus, option C is the correct answer.

**12)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The path can be drawn as below.

Hence point B is to the North-west of point D.

**13)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let North direction be â€˜jâ€™, South direction be â€˜-jâ€™ , West direction be â€˜-Iâ€™ and East direction be â€˜iâ€™ .

=> 4(j) + 5(-i) + 5(-j) + 6(i) + 1(j)

=> 1(i)

Since he is one unit East of the initial point, he would have to go in West Direction

Hence, correct option is B

**14)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The question only asks for the final direction.

So the distances travelled need not be considered.

The person travelling takes one left and then one right.

By doing so his final direction will be the same as his initial direction.

Hence the final direction is south.

**15)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let Abhay started from point A and travelled north for 9 km and reached B, then turned left towards west and traveled 5 km, then again turned left and finally stopped at point D after travelling 9 km.Thus, AD = BC = 5 km$\therefore$ He is 5 km to the west of his starting point.=> Ans – (A)

**16)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let Sunita started from point A, and travelled north to reach B, then she turned left and reached point C, again she turned left and travelled for 4 km. So, D is 2 km to the west of A.Thus, AB = CD = 4 km=> Ans – (C)

**17)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let Pinky started from point A and travelled 600 m east to reach B, then she turned left to reach C after travelling 500 m, again she turned left and travelled for 600 m, and finally stopped at point A.$\because$ Her final position and initial positions are same, thus she is 0 m from the starting point.=> Ans – (D)

**18)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let we start from point A, and run north for 4 km to reach B, then turn left and run for 5 km and reach C, then again turn left and run for 5 km, again a left turn for 6 km and finally stop at point F after running for 1 km.Now, to reach the starting point, we need to run 1 km to the west.=> Ans – (A)

**19)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let Sohan started from point A, and travelled west for 15 km to reach B, then he turned left and walked for 20 km till he reach point C, he then turned east to walk 25 km and finally stopped at point E.Thus, AE = 25 – 15 = 10 km=> Ans – (C)

**20)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let Anand started from point A and travelled east for 10 km to reach his school at B, then travelled south for 5 km to reach his father’s shop at C, finally travelled west for 10 km to stop at point D.Thus, AD = 5 km$\therefore$ Anand is 5 km to the south of his home.=> Ans – (B)
