  1. From a point, Sahil starts walking in east direction. After walking for 15 m he takes a right turn. Now he walks for 12 m before turning to his right again. Next he walks 5 m and again turns in same direction as before. He now walks for 20 m before stopping at a point. How far is this point from the point where Sahil started?
    A) 4 √10 m
    B) 3 √22 m 
    C) 7 m 
    D) 2√41 m 
    E) 12 m
    View Answer
     Option D
    Required distance = √(102 + 82) = 2√41 m 
  2. Abhi and Asha start cycle race from point A. They both start in east direction. After cycling for 7 m, Abhi continues straight while Asha takes a left turn. They both cycle for 6 m before turning right and left directions respectively.  Next

    B) 3√21 m
    C) 2√19 m
    D) 4√17 m
    E) None of these
    View Answer
    Option E
    Solution:

    AB = √(82 +22) = 2√17 m

  5. Anaya started from a point in some direction. After walking for some time, she turned to her right and continued walking. Now walking for some distance she turned to her left and after this finally to her right. If now she is walking in west direction, in which direction did she started her journey?
    A) North
    B) West
    C) East
    D) South
    E) East or west
    View Answer
     Option D
    Solution:
    Start from back and direct towards starting direction
    She is walking in west and before that she turned to her right, so she must be travelling in south before turning right.
    Now she was walking in south and before that she turned to her left, so she must be travelling in west before turning left.
    Now she was walking in west and before that she turned to her right, so she must be travelling in south before turning right.
    At last south direction. 
  6. Sheetal started from point in South direction. After walking for 5 km she took a right turn. Now she walked another 5 km and took a left turn. Then after walking for 2 km she took a right turn. After covering more 2 km she turned 45o in clockwise direction. She is facing which direction now?
    A) South West
    B) South East
    C) North East
    D) North West
    E) None of these
    View Answer
    Option B
    Solution:

Directions (7-8): Point P is 5 m south of point A. Point T is 8 m east of point Q. Point Z is 4 m west of point V. Point P is 6 m west of point B. Point V is 6 m south of point T. Point Q is 4 m south of point B.

  1. Find distance AZ.
    A) 5√13 m
    B) 6√13 m
    C) 4√14 m
    D) 7√15 m
    E) 3√11 m
    View Answer
    Option A
    Solution:

    Vertical distance = 5+4+6 = 15 m

    Horizontal distance = (PB) + (QT – CV) = 6 + (8-4) = 10 m
    So AZ = √(152 + 102) = 5√13 m
  2. A person starts from point B in north direction. Walks for 6 m and reaches point C, takes a right turn walks for 5 m reaches point F. Again he takes a right turn, walks for 3 m, reaches point H, now takes a left turn, reaches point K, now takes a final right turn to reach point T. Find the area enclosed by points B, Q, T, K, H, F and C.
    A) 58m2  
    B) 65m2   
    C) 71m2   
    D) 76m2   
    E) None of these
    View Answer
      Option C
    Solution:


    The area will be = Ar. of rectangle QCFD + Ar. of  DHKT = 10*5 + 3*7 = 71m2   

Directions (9-10): Point A is 8 m west of point B. Point E is 2 m east of point F. Point G is 3 m east of point H. Point E is 3 m north of point of point D. Point C is 9 m west of point D. Point G is 9 m north of point F. Point C is 6 m south of point B.

  1. Find distance AH.
    A) 7√6 m
    B) 7√5 m
    C) 6√6 m
    D) 6√5 m
    E) None of these
    View Answer
      Option D
    Solution:

    Vertical distance = GF – (CB – ED) = 9 – (6-3) = 6

    Horizontal distance = AB + (CD – (HG + FE)) = 8 + (9 – (3+2) = 12
    Required distance AH = √(62 + 122) = 6√5 m
  2. A person starts from point G in east direction. Walks for 6 m, takes a right turn, now walks for 5 m. Now he takes a left turn, walks for 3 m, then after two consecutive right turns he reaches point E. Find the distance travelled by him to reach point E.
    A) 27 m
    B) 25 m
    C) 23 m
    D) 24 m
    E) 28 m
     
    View Answer
      Option B
    Solution:

    6 + 5+ 3 + (9-5) + (3+4) = 25 m
