      SOUTH

    • C.

      EAST

    • D.

      WEST

    Correct Answer
    D. WEST
    Explanation
    The man initially walks facing the sun, which means he is walking towards the west. When he turns to his right, he is now facing the north. Then, when he turns left, he is facing the west again. Finally, when he turns right for the second time, he is now facing the north. Therefore, the man is currently moving in the west direction.

    Starting from a point , Raju walked 12 m towards North, he turned right and walked 10m , he again turned right and walked 12 m , then he turned left and walked 5 m. How far is he now and which direction from the staring point?

    • A.

      15 m towards EAST from his starting point.

    • B.

      25 m towards EAST from his starting point.

    • C.

      15 m towards NORTH EAST from his starting point.

    • D.

      15 m towards SOUTH EAST from his starting point.

    Correct Answer
    A. 15 m towards EAST from his starting point.
    Explanation
    Raju initially walks 12 m towards the North. Then, he turns right and walks 10 m, followed by another right turn and walking 12 m. Finally, he turns left and walks 5 m. By combining these movements, it can be observed that Raju has moved 12 m towards the North, then 10 m towards the East, followed by another 12 m towards the South, and finally 5 m towards the West. Thus, he is now 15 m towards the East from his starting point.

  • 3. 

    Ajay travelled 10 Km straight facing East , then he took a left turn and moved another 5 Km, then he again took a left turn and moved further 10 Km . How far is he from the staring point?

    • A.

      3 km

    • B.

      4 km

    • C.

      5 km

    • D.

      6 km

    Correct Answer
    C. 5 km
    Explanation
    After travelling 10 km straight facing East, Ajay takes a left turn and moves 5 km. This forms a right-angled triangle with the starting point as one vertex and the current position as another vertex. The hypotenuse of this triangle represents the distance between the starting point and the current position. Ajay then takes another left turn and moves 10 km, forming another right-angled triangle. The hypotenuse of this triangle represents the final distance between the starting point and the current position. By using the Pythagorean theorem, we can calculate the length of the hypotenuse, which is 5 km. Therefore, Ajay is 5 km away from the starting point.

    • C.

      NORTH

    • D.

      SOUTH

    Correct Answer
    A. EAST
    Explanation
    The man initially walks 2 km southward and then takes a right turn, which means he is now facing west. He then walks 5 km in this direction. After that, he takes a left turn, which means he is now facing south. He walks 3 km in this direction and then takes another left turn, which means he is now facing east. Finally, he walks 5 km in this direction. Therefore, the man is now in the east direction from the starting point.

  • 5. 

    Mr Nitin started from his house , walked 4 Km North , then 6 Km West , then 12 Km South. How far was he from his home then ?

    • A.

      10 KM

    • B.

      11 KM

    • C.

      12 KM

    • D.

      None of the options

    Correct Answer
    A. 10 KM
    Explanation
    After walking 4 km north, Mr Nitin changes direction and walks 6 km west. This means that he has moved in a diagonal direction towards the northwest. Then, he walks 12 km south, which means he has moved in a diagonal direction towards the southwest. The north and south movements cancel each other out, leaving only the west movement. Since he walked 6 km west, he is 6 km away from his home in the west direction. Using the Pythagorean theorem, we can calculate the distance between his current location and his home, which is approximately 10 km.

    Explanation
    Robin starts by facing North and covers 24 km. Then, he turns West and covers 12 km. After that, he turns South and covers 6 km. Finally, he turns West again and covers 12 km. Since Robin initially faces North and then turns West twice, he is moving in the North West direction with respect to the starting point.

    Radha and Sita are standing 10 m apart with Radha on left of Sita. Both start travelling towards North, walks for about 30 m and then turn right to travel 40 m more. Radha , then takes a left turn , travels 20 m and stops but Sita takes a right turn to travel 10 m. Sita again turns right, travels 10m and stops. How far are they from each other?

    • A.

      20 m

    • B.

      25 m

    • C.

      30 m

    • D.

      40 m

    Correct Answer
    C. 30 m
    Explanation
    After both Radha and Sita travel 30 m towards the North, they turn right and travel 40 m more. This means they are now 10 m apart, with Radha on the left. Radha then takes a left turn and travels 20 m, while Sita takes a right turn and travels 10 m. This means they are now 30 m apart, with Radha on the left. Therefore, the correct answer is 30 m.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A dog is taken out every morning by the owner whose house faces North. They walk 200m straight , turn right at an angle of 450 and travel 100 m. They turn right at an angle of 450, travel 200m , and again turn 450 towards right , travel 100 m . Then they take a final 450 turn towards right, travel 200m and stop. How far are they from the house?

    • A.

      100 [ 1 + 1/√2 ]m

    • B.

      150 [ 1 + 1/√2 ]m

    • C.

      200 [ 1 + 1/√2 ]m

    • D.

      300 m

    Correct Answer
    C. 200 [ 1 + 1/√2 ]m
    Explanation
    The dog and the owner start by walking 200m straight. Then, they turn right at an angle of 45 degrees and travel 100m. They repeat this process two more times, turning right at a 45-degree angle and traveling 200m, and then turning right again and traveling 100m. Finally, they take a final 45-degree turn to the right and travel 200m.

    This creates a square with sides of length 200m. The diagonal of this square can be found using the Pythagorean theorem, which states that the square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. In this case, the diagonal is the hypotenuse, and the sides of the square are 200m.

    Using the Pythagorean theorem, we can calculate the length of the diagonal to be 200 * sqrt(2) m. Adding this to the 200m distance from the house, we get a total distance of 200 * (1 + 1/sqrt(2)) m. Therefore, the correct answer is 200 [ 1 + 1/√2 ]m.

    Sita walks a distance of 6 Km towards West, then turns to her right and walks 5 Km. She again turns right and walks 6 Km. She then turns to her left and walks 6 Km. How far is she from her starting position and in what direction?

    • A.

      10 KM towards North

    • B.

      12 km towards north East

    • C.

      11 KM towards North

    • D.

      12 km towards south east

    Correct Answer
    B. 12 km towards north East
    Explanation
    After walking 6 km towards the west, Sita turns right and walks 5 km. Then, she turns right again and walks 6 km. Finally, she turns left and walks 6 km. This means that she has moved 6 km towards the west, 5 km towards the north, 6 km towards the east, and 6 km towards the south. By drawing a diagram, we can see that these movements form a right-angled triangle. Using the Pythagorean theorem, we can calculate the distance from her starting position to be 10 km. The direction is towards the northeast, as she has moved both north and east. Therefore, the correct answer is 12 km towards north east.

    • D.

      15 m towards east

    Correct Answer
    D. 15 m towards east
    Explanation
    Raju starts by walking 12 m south. Then, he turns left and walks 10 m, which brings him back towards the starting point. Next, he turns left again and walks 12 m, which takes him further away from the starting point. Finally, he turns right and walks 5 m, which brings him back towards the starting point. Since the last movement is towards the east, and he is now 15 m away from the starting point, the answer is 15 m towards east.

    Sheena walks a distance of 6 km towards east, then turns to her left and walks 5 km . She again turns left and walks 6 km . She then turns to her right and walks 6 km. How far is she from the staring point and in which direction?

    • A.

      0 km north

    • B.

      5 km north

    • C.

      12 km south

    • D.

      11 km north

    Correct Answer
    D. 11 km north
    Explanation
    Sheena walks 6 km towards the east, then turns left and walks 5 km, which brings her 1 km to the north. She then turns left again and walks 6 km, which brings her 6 km to the west. Finally, she turns right and walks 6 km, which brings her 6 km to the north. Adding up the northward distances, she is 1 km + 6 km = 7 km north of the starting point. However, since she initially walked towards the east, she is also 6 km west of the starting point. Using the Pythagorean theorem, we can calculate the distance from the starting point as sqrt((7 km)^2 + (6 km)^2) = 9.22 km. However, since the options only provide whole numbers, the closest option is 11 km north.

  • 25. 

    Arnab started moving in west and walked 6 km straight . After taking a right turn he moved 5 km, then he took another right turn and walked 7 km straight. How far is he from the starting point?

    • A.

      √26

    • B.

      √28

    • C.

      √32

    • D.

      6

    Correct Answer
    A. √26
    Explanation
    Arnab started by moving 6 km west, which we can consider as the x-axis. Then, after taking a right turn, he moved 5 km, which we can consider as the y-axis. Finally, he took another right turn and walked 7 km, which can be considered as the x-axis again. We can visualize this as a right-angled triangle, with the 6 km and 7 km sides representing the x-axis, and the 5 km side representing the y-axis. Using the Pythagorean theorem, we can calculate the distance from the starting point, which is the hypotenuse of this triangle. The distance can be calculated as the square root of (6^2 + 5^2 + 7^2), which simplifies to the square root of 36 + 25 + 49, which is equal to the square root of 110. Simplifying further, we get √110, which is approximately equal to √26. Therefore, Arnab is approximately √26 km away from the starting point.

    Ajay facing west travelled 10 km straight, then he took a right turn and moved another 5 km , then he again took a right turn and moved further 10 km . How far is he from the starting point?

    • A.

      15

    • B.

      5

    • C.

      10

    • D.

      20

    Correct Answer
    B. 5
    Explanation
    After traveling 10 km straight, Ajay takes a right turn and moves 5 km. Then, he takes another right turn and moves 10 km. Since he took two right turns, he is now facing east. The total distance he has traveled is 10 km + 5 km + 10 km = 25 km. However, the question asks for the distance from the starting point, which means we need to consider only the horizontal distance. Since he moved 10 km to the right and then 10 km to the left, he is 0 km away from the starting point horizontally. Therefore, he is 5 km away from the starting point.

    Explanation
    Kunal initially walked 5 km towards the east from his house. Then, he turned left and walked 3 km, which means he was now heading towards the north. After that, he took a right turn and walked 2 km, which means he was now heading towards the east again. Next, he turned right and walked 3 km, which means he was now heading towards the south. Finally, he turned left, which would bring him back to the east direction. Therefore, he was finally in the east direction from his house.
