Where is the position of Roy's house in relation to Babu's? Babu is Rahim's neighbor and his house is 200 meters away in the North West direction. Joseph is Rahim's neighbor and his house is located 200 meters away in the southwest direction. Gopal is Joseph's neighbor and he stays 200 meters away in the southeast direction. Roy is Gopal's neighbor and his house is located 200 meters away in the northeast direction. Â
The correct answer to this question is A, South east. This question can best be solved by writing or drawing out each of the directions. Then, comparing the drawing to that of a compass (a device to identify direction), the answer reveals itself as south east.
This direction, along with the other possible choices, are intercardinal directions. They are also known as intermediate directions or ordinals. South east lists directly between South and East. It brings energy from both directions. This type of question would be found on a college level engineering course, which deals with reasoning to solve problems.
