Question 1 of 24
Sobha was facing East. She walked 20 metres. Turning left she moved 15 metres and then turning right moved 25 metres. Finally, she turned right and moved 15 metres more. How far is she from her starting point.
Shobha turns left after walking 20 metres towards East. Now she walks 15 metres towards North. She turns right towards East again and walks 25 metres further. Finally turning right towards South, she walks 15 metres. The distance moved towards North and towards South is same, i.e., 15 metres. So, Shobha is 20 + 25 metres = 45 metres away from her starting point.

The movements of Deepak are as shown in fig.
Clearly, FB = DC = 40 m .
∴ Deepak’s distance from the starting point A
= (AB – EB) = (75 – 40) m = 35m.

Question 14 of 24
One day, Ravi left home and cycled 10 km southwards, turned right and cycled 5 km and turned right and cycled 10 km and turned left and cycled 10 km. How many kilometres will he have to cycle to reach his home straight?
Here, Ravi starts from home at A, moves 10 km southwards up to B, turns right and moves 10 km up to C, turns right again and moves 10 km up to D and finally turns left and moves 10 km up to E.
Thus, his distance from initial position A = AE
= AD + DE = BC + DE
= (5 + 10) km = 15 km.
Question 15 of 24
Rasik walks 20 m North. Then, he turns right and walks 30 m. Then he turns right and walks 35 m. Then he turns left and walks 15 m. Then he again turns left and walks 15 m. In which direction and how many metres away is he from his original position?
The movements of Rasik from A to F are as shown in figure.
Since CD = AB + EF, so F lies in line with A.
Rasik’s distance from original position A = AF
= (AG + GF) = (BC + DE) = (30 + 15) m = 45m.
Also, F lies to the east of A.
Question 16 of 24
Rohit walked 25 metres towards South. Then he turned to his left and walked 20 metres. He then turned to his left and walked 25 metres. He again turned to his right and walked 15 metres. At what distance is he from the starting point and in which direction?
The movements of Rohit are as shown in figure.
Rohit’s distance from starting point A
= AE = (AD + DE) = (BC + DE) = (20 + 15) m = 35 m.
Also, E is to the East of A.
Question 17 of 24
I am facing east. I turn 100° in the clockwise direction and then 145° in the anti-clockwise direction. Which direction am I facing now?
As shown in figure, the man initially faces towards east i.e., in the direction OA. On moving 100° clockwise, he faces in the direction OB. On further moving 145° anticlockwise, he facings the direction OC. Clearly, OC makes an angle of (145° – 100°) i.e. 45° with OA and so, the man faces in the direction North-east.
Question 18 of 24
A man is facing north-west. He turns 90° in the clockwise direction, then 180° in the anti-clockwise direction and then another 90° in the same direction. Which direction is he facing now?
As shown in figure, the man initially faces in the direction OP. On moving 90° clockwise, he faces in the direction OX. On further moving 180° anticlockwise, he faces in the direction OY. Finally, on moving 90° anticlockwise, he faces in the direction OZ, which is South-east.
Question 19 of 24
A man is facing west. He runs 45° in the clockwise direction and then another 180° in the same direction and then 270° in the anti-clockwise direction. Which direction is he facing now?
Clearly, the man initially faces in the direction OA. On moving 45° clockwise, he faces in the direction OB. On further moving 180° clockwise, he faces in the direction OC. Finally, on moving 270° anticlockwise, he faces in the direction OD, which is South-west. Hence, the answer is (d)
Question 20 of 24
If South-east becomes North, North-east becomes West and so on, what will West become?
Here, each direction moves 90° + 45° = 135°
