Explanation

1).According to the question, the direction diagram is as follows

It is clear from the diagram that both starting and finishing point are same i.e. , the man is at starting point ‘A’.

2).According to the question, the direction diagram is as follows

Required distance = AD =BC =20m
So, Nikhil is 20m North from his starting point

3).According to the question. The direction diagram is as follows

From diagram, AB = 20m
BC = HD =10m
ED = 5m
CD = 35m
HE = AF
Required distance, AF = HF = HD – ED
=10 – 5 = 5m

4).According to the question, the direction diagram is as follows

A = Original position, E = Finishing point
BC =20, AB = 15m, AC = ED = 5m, CD =AE = 10m
Clearly, at finishing point E, Anoop is 10 m East from original position A.

5).According to the question, the direction diagram will be as follows

Clearly, Sanjay will go North-West starting from Rahate to reach Angne.

6).According to the question, the direction diagram is as follows

AB = CD =35m
DE = 20m
Required distance, AE = AD + DE
=20 + 20 = 40m

7).According to the question, the direction diagram is as follows

Clearly, the rat is facing North at finishing point.

8).According to the question, the direction diagram is as follows

S = Starting point, T = Finishing point
AS = BC = 25m
AB = SC = 50m
CT = 60m
Required distance, ST = CT – SC = 60 – 50 =10m
Clearly, at point T, Mahesh is 10 m West from S.

9).

Required distance = OD =OA + AD = OA + BC

=30 + 20 = 50m
