Direction Sense Test- Concept

Questions based on directions are generally asked in each examination. Hence in order to give correct answer, a candidate must have full knowledge about directions.

There are four main directions: North, South, East and west as shown below:

There are four cardinal directions-----North-East (N-E), North-West (N-W), South-East (S-E), and South-West (S-W).

• At the time of sunrise if a man stands facing the east, his shadows will be toward west.
• At the time of sunset the shadow of an object is always in the east.
• If a man stands facing the North, at the time of sunrise his shadow will be toward his left and at the time of sunset it will be toward his right.
• At 12.00, the rays of the sun are vertically downward hence there will be no shadow.

For Example:

Baby starting from her house goes 5 km in the east, then turns to her left and goes 4 km. Finally she turns to her left and goes 5 km. Now how far is she from her house and in what direction?

Solution:

From the third position, it is clear that she is 4 km from her house and is in the North direction
