Directions: Study the following questions carefully and answer the questions given below.

1
The distance between N and P is 50 m and that between Q and R is 40m. Q is to the west of R, which is to the east of N at a distance of 70m. P is to the west or northwest or north of Q.
 
If Q is to the south of P, what is the distance between P and Q?
» Explain it
A



From Formula  

NP2 = NQ2 + PQ2

∴   NP =  NP2 – NQ2

=   (50)2 – (30)2

=   2500 – 900

=   1600  = 40m


Hence, option A is correct.

2
The distance between N and P is 50m and that between Q and R is 40m. Q is to the west of R, which is to the east of N at a distance of 70m. P is to the west or northwest or north of Q.
 
In which direction is R with respect to P?
» Explain it
D

We can cleary observe from the figure that R is in either East or Southeast direction with respect to p.
 
Hence, option D is correct.
3
P is 9 m to the south of K. K is 5 m to the east of H. H is 4 m to the north of B. L is 3 m west of B. D is 7 m south of L. G is 8 m east of D.

If point Z is 5 m to the west of point P, then what is the distance between B and Z?
» Explain it
C



HZ  =  PK  =  9 m
 
∴  BZ  =  HZ – BH  =  9  –  4  =  5 m
 
Hence, option C is correct.
 
4
P is 9 m to the south of K. K is 5 m to the east of H. H is 4 m to the north of B. L is 3 m west of B. D is 7 m south of L. G is 8 m east of D.
 
How far and in which direction is point K from Point G?
» Explain it
C


∴  KG  =  4  +  7  = 11 m.
 
Hence, option C is correct.
 
5
The door of B’s house faces east. From the back side of his house, B walks straight 50 m. Again he walks 25m after turning to his left, then he turns to his right and walks 50m. Finally he turns towards north and walks 25m and stops.

What is the distance between the starting and the end point?
» Explain it
B

We can clearly observe from figure that the distance between starting point to end point (B to T) is 50m + 50m = 100m.

Hence, option B is correct.
