A Car moves 8m from Point A in the north direction to reach Point B. Then it turns and moves for 10m in north-west direction. Then it turns and moves 8m in south direction. Then it turns right and moves for 3m to reach point C, which is in west direction with respect to Point B. Then finally, it turns and moves for 10m in south-west direction to reach Point D, which is west direction with respect to Point A.[S.1, Q.1]

What is the shortest distance between Point A and Point D?
» Explain it
B
Following the common explanation, we get "From above figure, the shortest distance between Point A and Point D is 15m".

Hence, option B is correct.

Common Explanation

References:

A Car moves 8m from Point A in the north direction to reach Point B.

Then it turns and moves for 10m in north-west direction.

Then it turns and moves 8m in south direction.

Then it turns right and moves for 3m to reach point C, which is in west direction with respect to Point B.

Inferences:

From above statements,

From 4th reference point, it is given that Point C is to west of Point B. By using this condition and above statements we get the following figure,

Note: The distance between Point C and Point B is calculated as follows,

The 2/3rd of the distance between Point C and Point B is,

102–82=100–64 =36 = 6m

The 1/3rd of the distance between Point C and Point B is 3m

Total distance between Point C and Point B is 6m + 3m = 9m

References:

Then finally, it turns and moves for 10m in south-west direction to reach Point D, which is west direction with respect to Point A.

Inferences:

From above statements,

It is given that Point D is to west of Point A. Also by using above information we get the final completed diagram as shown.

Note: The distance between Point D and Point A is calculated as follows,

The 2/5th of the distance between Point D and Point A is,

102 – 82 = 100–64 = 36 = 6m

The 3/5%th of the distance between Point D and Point A is 9m.

Total distance between Point D and Point A is 6m + 9m=15m

A Car moves 8m from Point A in the north direction to reach Point B. Then it turns and moves for 10m in north-west direction. Then it turns and moves 8m in south direction. Then it turns right and moves for 3m to reach point C, which is in west direction with respect to Point B. Then finally, it turns and moves for 10m in south-west direction to reach Point D, which is west direction with respect to Point A.[S.1, Q.2]

What is the shortest distance between Point D and Point B?
» Explain it
C
Following the common explanation, we get "From above figure, the shortest distance between Point D and Point B is 17m".

To find the shortest distance between Point D and Point B

152 + 82 = 225 + 64 = 289 = 17m

Hence, option C is correct.

Metro train moved 12 km in north direction from NDLS to reach Patel Chowk. From there it took a right turn and moved 20 km to reach Udyog Bhawan. Then it moved 6km after taking a left turn and reached Central Sec. From there it again took a left turn and moved a distance of 8km to reach INA. Then it covered 13km in south direction to reach AIIMS. From there it took a right turn and moved 7km to reach Saket, where metro terminates.[S.2, Q.1]

What is the shortest distance between INA and Udyog Bhawan?
