    Explanation:

    To solve this, we will start from opposite.
    She is facing east now, and before that she had taken a right turn – this means she was walking in north direction, then took right turn and is in East direction finally.
    Now before moving in north direction, she had taken a left turn – this means she was coming in east direction, took left turn and then she is in north.
    Now before moving in east direction, she had taken a left turn – this means she was coming in south direction, took left turn and then she is in east.
    So finally we have got that she started in south direction.

  5. Shilpi wants to go to market and she starts from her home which is in North and comes to a crossing. The road to her left ends in a mall and straight ahead is a park. In which direction is the market to the house? (Suppose there are 4 places in 4 directions of the crossing)
    A) 3
    B) 5
    C) 6
    D) Data inadequate
    E) None of these
    E) None of these
    Explanation:

    Her home is in North means the home is North facing and she starts towards North direction.
    To her left i.e. in east direction is mall.
    Straight ahead from where she is standing, i.e. in North of where she is standing is park.
    So all this gives that the market is in west direction to where she is standing. So from her house the direction is North west.direction_8-5

  6. A town P is located on the river valley. The town Q is in the west of town P. Town R is east of town Q but west of town P. Town S is east of town T but west of town Q and R. If all these towns are situated at equal distances from adjacent towns, which town is in the middle?
    A) P
    B) Q
    C) R
    D) S
    E) T
    B) Q
    Explanation:

    Since S is east of T and west of both Q and R, S is between T and Q.
    The order of towns is:
    T             S            Q               R               P

  7. After walking for 1 m, Madhuri turned to her left and walked another 12 m. Again she turned to her left and walked for 4 m. Now she is travelling in East direction. In which direction did she start her journey?

    Now before moving in South direction, she had taken a left turn – this means she was coming in west direction, took left turn and then she is in south.
    So finally we have got that she started in west direction.

    PQ = √OP2+OQ2
    = √ 22+142 = √200 = 10√2
