# Reasoning: Direction Sense Questions Set 9

Directions (1-4): Read the following information carefully to answer the questions that follow. The questions are based on following coding formats:
# – North
@ – South
% – East
\$ – West
! – Either 4 or 6 m
& – Either 3 or 6 m
Examples: P@Q means P is South of Q, P#\$Q means P is North-West of Q, P\$!Q means P is West of Q at a distance of either 4 or 6 m.
Conditions given are as:
I. A\$&P
II. P#!D
III. D\$!G
IV. K#&G
V. K%&M
VI. P\$K

1. If P%M, what is the distance between points P and G?
2√10 m
3√13 m
2√13 m
3√10 m
None of these
Option C
Solution: Note that P is west of K.
For Q1: To make P west of M, MK should be greater than DG, which is possible when DG = 4, MK = 6
So, PG = √(PD2 + DG2) = √(62 + 42) = 2√13 m

2. A person starts from point L, which is somewhere between points D and G, moves in ‘#’ direction and reaches point M. What is the distance between points L and K?
4√6 m
3√5 m
3√10 m
2√5 m
3√6 m
Option B
Solution:
Given that M is north of L and L is somewhere between points D and G, so MK should be less than DG – which is possible when MK = 3, DG = 4 or 6. So now LG = 3, KG = 6
So, LK = √(KG2 + LG2) = √(62 + 32) = 3√5 m

3. Which of the following is definitely false based on the position of points given in Question above?
A#\$G
D@\$K
G@%P
M#%G
D@\$M
Option D
Solution: We have to find definitely false, M is definitely North-West of G, so M#\$G is correct.

4. A person starts walking from point A, goes in ‘@’ direction, takes a ‘%’ turn and reaches point D. What is the distance from the starting point?
6√2 m
3√10 m
2√13 m
None of these
Cannot be Determined
Option E
Solution: Assume point S south of A, and west of D.
AS = PD = 6, SD = AP = 4 or 6, so cannot be determined.

Directions (5-7): Point A is 6 m west of point B, point C is 4 m south of point B and 5 m west of point D. Point D is 7 m south of point E which if 2 m east of point F.

1. What is the distance between points A and F?
3√10 m
3√5 m
5√13 m
3√13 m
4√10 m
Option A
Solution: AF = √(92 + 32) = 3√10 m

2. A person starts from point F in south direction, walks 5 m, turns left and walks 6 m. Find his distance from point D?
3√10 m
3√6 m
2√11 m
Cannot be determined
2√5 m
Option E
Solution: Required Distance = √(42 + 22) = 2√5 m

3. A person starts from point E in east direction, walks 12 m, takes right turn, walks 2 m, now turns right again and walks 5 m. Next finally takes a left turn and after walking 4 m, stops at a point L. Find the distance between points L and D?
2√5 m
6√2 m
5√2 m
6√2 m
None of these
Option C
Solution: LD = √(72 + 12) = 5√2 m

4. A person starts walking from point A in south direction, walks for 4m, takes a left turn and walks 6 m. Now he takes right turn and walks 2 m, finally takes a right turn and stops after walking 4 m. Find his distance from the starting point.
√10 m
3√6 m
2√5 m
3√10 m
None of these
Option E
Solution: Required Distance = √(62 + 22) = 2√10 m

5. What is the direction of point A with respect to point J? (Which statements can answer the Question?)
Statement I: Point B is west of point C, point D is north of point C, point B is north of point A, point D is west of point E.
Statement II: Point F is south of point E, point H is north of point G, point H is east of point E, point F is west of point G.

If statement I can alone answer the question
If statement II can alone answer the question
If either statement I or II can answer the question
If neither statement I nor II can answer the question
If both statement I and II together can answer the question
Option D
Solution: Since we do not know the distances between points, so cannot be determined from any statement or both together

6. What is the direction of point A with respect to point J? (Which statements can answer the Question?)
Statement I: Point A is 6 m west of point B, point B is 7 m north of point C, point E is 3 m north of point D which is 3 m west of point C.
Statement II: Point P is 2 m east of point Q, point Q is 4 m north of point R which is 5 m west of point J, point P is 7 m south of point D.
Statement III: Point F is 8 m north of point G and 5 m west of point E, point J is 10 m north of point H which is 11 m east of point G.

If Question can be answered using I and II together
If Question can be answered using I and III together
If Question can be answered using I and II or I and III together
If Question can be answered using all I, II and III together
If Question cannot be answered using even all three statements together
Option C

IN QUESTION 2,,, KG can be 3 or 6 how did u take it 6? plz tell

2. AmRITa @ bank po

No1&2 doubt..

1. Shubhra

1. pree........:)

the distance between P and D is 4 or 6, why you take 6??? it can be 4

1. Shubhra

Because P is west of K. That is possible when PD = KG.
So for that both equal 6, their common value

2. AmRITa @ bank po

Mam in no.1 p is west of m na..diag.shows p is in east direct. Of m

1. Shubhra

Yes. P east of M

3. ritz

mam in question 8 we r not given the initial distance which is travelled when person starts walking in south direction from point A, so how can we find the distance from his initial to final position.Plz
explain

1. Shubhra

Yes, it is to be given.

1. ritz

thanku mam

4. Ish :)

Ma’am IN QUESTION 2,,, KG can be 3 or 6 how did u take it 6?

3. Garima

Thnq Mam :))

1. Ish :)

IN QUESTION 2,,, KG can be 3 or 6 how did u take it 6? plz tell?

1. Garima

Yes it is 6,because somewhere b/w D and G ,L is point and when we move in North direction we reach at point M, so to satisfy this condition,
Distance between DG should be equal to PK ,so we have taken 6m
I hope you understand :))

1. PHENOMENAL

in q7 D point is not given

2. PHENOMENAL

in 10 ques ans should be 1 and 3 only jbtk 3 nhi bnega 2 nhi bn payega kyuki J ki position to pta hi nhi h 1 and 2 se , 1 and 3 se jb J ayega uske baad 2 bnega but 1 and 3 bnane se A and J ki distance mil rhi h to 2 optn kyu lenge?

1. Garima

1&2 se bhi J ki position mil jaegi, D is common point b/w 1&2 so J ki pos pta lg jaegi
Ans is right
