Solutions:
1). According to the Question,

Required distance,
= 3-2 = 1 km
Hence, Rohan is 1 km far away from starting point
2). According to the questions

A is the second turn.
Required distance,
XA = √ [(XA)2 + (YA)2]
= √ [(80)2 + (50)2]
= √ [6400+2500]
= √ (8900) m
Hence, Rahul was √ 8900 m far apart at second point from starting point
3). According to the questions

Required distance,
EQ = AP-(AB+CD+PQ)
= 150 – (25+25+35)
= 150 -85
= 65 km
Hence, both buses aew 65km far away from each other
4). According to the questions

Required distance = AD= AE + ED
[ AE = BC, ED = BC (by the property of parallelogram)]
= 50 + 50 = 100m
Hence, market is 100m far away from the starting point
5). According to the questions

Clearly, North will be North-West after Change
