**Q12. Sanju walks 10 metres towards the south. Turning to the left, he walks 20 metres and then moves to his right. After moving a distance of 20 metres, he truns to the right and walks 20 metres. Finally, he turns to the right and moves a distance of 10 metres. How far and in which direction is he from the starting point?**

(b) 20 metres South

(c) 20 metres North

(d)10 metres South

**Ans.(b) **

**Sol. **

**The movements of Sanju from A to F are as shown in figure**

**Clearly, Sanju’s distance from starting point A **

**= AF = (AB + BF)**

**= AB + (BE – EF)= AB + (CD – EF)**

**= (10 + (20 – 10))m = (10 + 10) m = 20m.**

**Also, F lies to the South of A.**

**So, Sanju is 20 metres to the south of his starting point. **

**Q13. Kajul goes 30 metres North, then turns right and walks 40 metres, then again turns right and walks 20 metres, then again turns right and walks 40 metres. How many metres is she from her original position?**

**Sol.**

** **

**The movements of Kajul are as shown in figure **

**(A to B, B to C, C to D, D to E)**

**∴ Kajul’s distance from her original position A **

**=> AE = (AB – BE) = (AB – CD)**

**= (30 – 20)m = 10m.**
