## Direction Sense Questions

**Directions**: Point D is 2 km to the north of point C. Point G is 8 km to the north of point H. Point A is 15 km to the south of point B. Point C is 8 km to the east of point B. Point E is 10 km to the north of point F which is 4 km to the west of point G. Point D is 4 km to the west of point E.

Refer the above for the Questions 121 to 123

121. If a person starts from point H and reaches point S which is south of point C, then find distance CS + HS "“ EF.

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:14 km

Explanation:

Point S is south of point C, so

CS = EF - DC + GH

= 10 - 2 + 8

= 16 km

and, HS = DE + FG

= 4+4

= 8 km

and EF is 10 km

So CS + HS â€“ EF = 16 +8 â€“ 10 =

**14 km**

122. If a person after taking 2 turns reaches to point B from point F via point A, then what is the distance that he covered?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:34 km

Explanation:

The only possibility for this case, is shown below:

Here, FT = BA + DC - EF

= 15 + 2 - 10

---> FT = 7 km

Now, Distance that the person covered from point F to point B via point A = FT + TA + AB

= 7 + (4 + 8) + 15

=

Here, FT = BA + DC - EF

= 15 + 2 - 10

---> FT = 7 km

Now, Distance that the person covered from point F to point B via point A = FT + TA + AB

= 7 + (4 + 8) + 15

=

**34 km**
Workspace

123. Find shortest distance between B and H.

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:16√2 km

Explanation:

The shortest distance between B and H = √[(AB + AJ)

^{2}+ (JH)

^{2}]

= √[(15 + 1)

^{2}+ (8 + 4 + 4)

^{2}]

= √[16

^{2}+ 16

^{2}]

= √{16

^{2}[1 + 1]}

= √{16

^{2}[2]}

=

**16√2 km**

132. Radhika starts walking in south direction and walks a distance of 7 m. Now she tooks a left turn and walk 6 m. Again she takes a left turn and walk 15 m and reached a point Q. Find the distance between starting point and Q and in which direction is the person from the initial point?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:10m, Northeast

Explanation:

Distance between initial point to Q = √[(8)

^{2}+ (6)

= √(64 + 36)

= √(100)

= 10 m

The distance between starting point and Q is 10m and the direction is north-east from the initial point.

133. Anaya is 15m to the west of Rithika. Rithika is 20m to the north of Genelia. Genelia is 12m to the east of Diksha. Faizah is 16m to the north of Diksha. If Anaya has to meet Faizah through the shortest distance and then has to meet Genelia from Faizah"™s point through the shortest distance, then what is the total distance travelled by Anaya?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:25m

Explanation:

Shortest distance between Ananya to Faizah:

√(4Â² + 3Â²) = √(16 + 9)

√(25) = 5m

Shortest distance between Faizah to Genelia:

√(16Â² + 12Â²) = √(256 + 144)

√(400) = 20m

Total distance travelled by Anaya = 5 + 20 = 25m.
