E. None of these

4. S, T#Q, R@$Q; What is the position of R with respect to S?

A. North-east 

B. North-west 

C. North 

D. South 

E. South-west

1.

> P@Q implies P is either 2 or 12 km west of Q.

> R implies R is to the south-east of P.

> Q$R implies Q is either 5 or 9 km North of R.

Also, it is given that the distance between P and R is 13 km. Based on this information, P, Q, and R are arranged like this:

Practice Exercise 1 - Question 1 Direction DiagramSince the points P, Q and R form a right-angled triangle, the distance between the points P and Q and the points Q and R should be such that PQ2 + QR2 = PR2 = 132.

This is possible only when PQ = 12 km and QR = 5 km. Therefore, the distance between Q and R is 5 km. So, C is the correct option.

2.

U@Q implies U is either 2 or 12 km west of Q.

> U$T implies U is either 5 or 9 km North of T.

> T#S implies T is either 2 or 12 km east of S.

R#T implies R is either 2 or 12 km east of T.

Practice Exercise 1 - Question 2 Direction DiagramPossible distance between S and R is:

a. 2 + 12 = 14 Km

b. 2 + 2 = 4 km

c. 12 + 12 = 24 km

The distance between S and R cannot be 16 km. So, D is the correct option.

3.

> S@$T implies S is to the north-west of point T.

> T@Z implies T is either 2 or 12 km west of Z.

> X&Z implies X is either 5 or 9 km south of Z.

Practice Exercise 1 - Question 3 Direction DiagramClearly, X is in the south-east of S. Therefore, B is the correct option.

4.

> S implies S is to the south-east of T.

T#Q implies T is either 2 or 12 km east of Q.

> R@$Q implies R is to the north-west of point Q.

Practice Exercise 1 - Question 4 Direction Diagram

Clearly, R  is in the north-west of S. Therefore, B is the correct option.

Direction Sense Test Question 2: In the following questions, the symbols #, &, *, @ and $ are used with the following meanings as illustrated below. Study the following information and answer the given questions: 

> P#Q – P is in the south direction of Q.

> P@Q – P is in the north direction of Q.

> P&Q – P is in the east direction of Q.

> P$Q – P is in the west direction of Q.

> P*QS – P is the mid-point of QS vertically.

Note south-east direction is written as P#&Q and so on.

When it is given that the car honks once then it will be considered as the car takes a left turn and if it is given that the car honks twice it will be considered as the car takes a right turn.

Point S is &15m of point B. Point J is @33m of point S. Point K is @25m of point B. Point L is $20m of point K. Point Q is #40m of point L. Point F is &50m of point Q. Point E*DF. Point D is @30m of point F.

1. What approximate distance the car has to travel from point D to reach the airplane which is parked at point J?

A. 22m

B. 50m

C. 43m

D. 23m

E. 35m

2. What could be the possible shortest route to reach point K from point J?

A. Start in East till 15 m, honks once, cover 8 m.

B. Start in West till 15 m, honks twice, cover 8 m.

C. Start in South till 25 m, honks once, cover 8 m.

D. Start in North till 5 m, honks once, cover 8 m.

E. Start in West till 15 m, honks once, cover 8 m.

3. Point D is in which direction from point Q?

A. #

B. @$

C. #$

D. @&

E. #&

4. If point U is #15 m of point B then which of the following is the position of U with respect to F?

A. @, 24 m

B. $, 25 m

C. #, 15 m

D. $, 20 m

E. None of these

5. Point E is in which direction from point B?

A. #

B. @

C. $

D. &

E. #&

Based on the information given, the points are arranged like this:

Practice Exercise 2 Direction Diagram

1.

Practice Exercise 1 - Question 1 Direction Diagram

 In this question, we need to calculate the distance between the points D and J, which is approximately 23 m. So, the correct option is D.

2.

To reach point K from point J, clearly, the shortest route that the car can follow is to go 15 m West and then honk once to turn left and then cover 8 m. Therefore, the correct option is E.

3.

Point D is in north-east of point Q, which can be written as D@&Q. So, D is the correct option.

4.

Practice Exercise 1 - Question 4 Direction Diagram

Clearly, Point U is 30 m west of point F. So, E is the correct option.

5.

Point E is in the east of point B, which can be written as E&B. So, D is the correct option.
