Directions (Qs. 6 - 9): Study the following questions carefully and answer the questions given below.

Five persons – Ashu, Bharat, Deepa, Neeru and Reena were standing in a row facing North, but not necessarily in the same order. The distances between two adjacent persons are successive multiples of four (i.e. if the distance between the 1st and the 2nd person is 4m, 1st and the 3rd person is 8m and between 1st and 4th person is 12m and so on.) (i.e. suppose Ashu stand on the left end of the line then the remaining people will stand at a distance as follows – 4m, 8m, 12m and so on, from the end)
Ashu was standing at the left end of the line. Two people were standing between Ashu and Bharat. Deepa stands second to the left of Bharat. Reena was an immediate neighbour of Deepa. Only one person stands between Reena and Neeru. Jarina starts walking from point X which is 8m North from Reena. Jarina moves 17m in the North-East direction to reach point Y. Point Y and Neeru were inline vertically. Neeru moves 6m in the North direction and stops at point Z. Person Ashu moves in the direction to point Z.

6. What is the shortest distance between the initial position of Neeru and final position of Jarina?

Sol: Following the figure we made using the given information we can say that the shortest distance between the initial position of Neeru and final position of Jarina = (15 + 2 + 6) m = 23 m.

7. What is the direction of initial position of Jarina with respect to final position of Ashu?
A) North      B) East    C) North-West     D) West     E) South-East       Ans: C

8. What is the shortest distance between the final position of Ashu and initial position of Jarina?

9. If Ashu had stopped at point T which is 5m North from Bharat instead of point Z, then what would be the shortest distance between initial and final position of Ashu?
A) 12m     B) 15m     C) 13m     D) 10m      E) None of these
