1. Maddy starts from his house towards West. After walking a distance of 30 metres, he turned towards right and walked 20 metres. He then turned left and moving a distance of 10 metres, turned to his left again and walked 40 metres. He now turns to the left and walks 6 metres. Finally he turns to his left. In which direction is he walking now?
  • A. East
  • B. South
  • C. North
  • D. South west
  • E. South west
Ans: C.

The movements of Maddy are as shown in Fig. from A to G. Clearly, Maddy is finally walking in the direction FG i.e. North.
2. Prasanna went 15 kms to the west from my house, then turned left and walked 20 kms. He then turned East and walked 25 kms and finally turning left covered 20 kms. How far was he from his house?
  • A. 10 kms
  • B. 20 kms
  • C. 30 kms
  • D. 40 kms
Ans: A.

The movements of Prasanna are as shown in Fig.
Therefore Prasanna’s distance from his house at A
= AE = (BE – BA)
= (CD – BA) = (25 – 15 )m = 10 m.
3. A is 40 m South west of B. C is 40m South east of B. Then, C is in which direction of A?
  • A. West
  • B. North east
  • C. South
  • D. East
Ans: D.

A is clear from the adjoining diagram, C lies to the east of A.
4. Suganya moves towards South–east a distance of 7 km, then she moves towards West and travels a distance of 14 m. From here, she moves towards North-west a distance of 7 m and finally she moves a distance of 4 m towards East and stood at that point. How far is the starting point from where she stood?
  • A. 3 m
  • B. 4 m
  • C. 5 m
  • D. 10 m
Ans: D.

The movements of Suganya are as shown in Fig.
Clearly, Suganya’s distance from the starting point O
= OD – (OC – CD)
= (AB – CD) = (14 – 4) m = 10 m.
5. Vimal walks northwards. After a while, he turns to his right and a little further to his left. Finally, after walking a distance of one kilometre, he turns to his left again. In which direction is he moving now?
