Answer Key

  • Answer:  ​​​​ d

 

P was initially running 40 km in east direction. Then, P took a left turn and ran for​​ 20km in the North direction. Again after taking a right turn P ran for 18 km in east direction. P took a left turn and ran 24km in North direction and took a right turn and ran for 12 km in the west direction. So, P is finally running in the west direction.

 

  • Answer: ​​ d.

P walks 10km in south and took a right turn and walks 6km in east direction. Now, P took a left turn and walks 3 km in the south direction and finally took a left turn and walks for​​ 5km. So, with respect to the starting point, P is now standing in south direction.

  • Answer:  ​​​​ a
