**Sol.**

**Directions (6-10): Read the following information carefully to answer the questions that follow. The questions are based on following coding formats:**

**$ – North**

**@ – South**

**# – East**

**% – West**

**! – Either 3 or 8 m**

**& – Either 4 or 9 m**

**© – Either 1 or 6 m**

(Examples:

**P@Q**means**P is South of Q**,**P$%Q**means**P is North-West of Q, P#!Q**means**P is East of Q at a distance of either 3 or 8 m**)
Conditions given are as:

**I.**A %! B

**II**. A $! C

**III.**C %& D

**IV**. E @& B

**V**. D $© F

**VI**. E # F

**Q6. If distance between points P and D is 8 m, P$D, P%B, find the distance between points P and B?**

(a) 4 m

(b) 5 m

(c) 3 m

(d) 8 m

(e) None of these

**Q7. Given that L @! A, and L $ C, find the distance between points L and C?**

(a) 2 m

(b) 7 m

(c) 8 m

(d) 3 m

(e) 5m

**Q8. If K@C, then which of the following is definitely false?**

(a) F#K

(b) E$#K

(c) A$K

(d) B$%K

(e) K@%D

**Q9. If distance between points D and F is 6m then what will be the distance between A and C?**

(a) 3m

(b) 4m

(c) 8m

(d) 9m

(e) None of these

**Q10. If distance between points B and E is 4 m, find the shortest distance between point A and point D?**

(a) 8 m

(b) 10 m

(c) 11 m

(d) 5 m

(e) 4 m

**S6. Ans (a)**

**Sol.**P $ D means P is to the north of D at a distance of 8 m and P%B means P is to the west of B, so from these condition distance between A and C will be 8 m and A and P is 4m and P and B is 4 m.

**S7. Ans (e)**

**Sol.**L @! A means L is south of A at a distance of either 3m or 8 m and L $ C means L is the north of C from both the condition distance between A and L is 3 m and L and C is 5m.

**S8. Ans (d)**

**Sol.**K@C means K is to the south of C, and option d is definitely false as B$%K means B is to the north west of K which is definitely false as B is to the north east of K.

**S9. Ans (a)**

**Sol**. As DF=6m then distance between AC will be 3m because distance of BE will be either 4m or 9m. If AC= 8m then the condition will not be satisfied.

**S10. Ans (d)**

**Sol.**Since distance between B and E is 4 m therefore, distance between A and C will be 3m and the distance
