**Direction Test**

** **

**Learning Objectives**

- To get aware of direction map.
- Increasing interest about this segment of reasoning.
- Improving the logical ability.
- To be perfect in solving problems.

**Direction Sense Test**

The concept behind the directions is same that we use in our daily life. To solve the direction sense test, first we need to make a sketch of the data provided.

Remember, four main Directions are: North (N), South (S), East (E), West (W).

Four Cardinal Directions are: North-East (N-E), North-West (N-W), South-East (S-E), South-West (S-W).

**Direction Facts**:

- At the time of sunset, the shadow of an object (or a man facing East) is always in the East.
- At the time of sunrise, the shadow of an object is always in the West.
- If a man stands facing the North at the time of sunrise, his shadow will be towards his left and at the time of sunset, it will be towards his right.
- At 12: 00 noon, the rays of the sun are vertically downward, hence there will be no shadow.

**Clockwise and Anticlockwise Turn**

If you move in direction which is same as the moving direction of a clock hands, your movement is called **clockwise** **turn.**

Clockwise Turn Anticlockwise Turn

If you move in the opposite direction of the clockwise direction, your movement is called **anticlockwise turn**.

**Example:**

** **

**Garima starts moving from a point P towards East. After walking some distance she turns her left. Now, her direction is definitely towards:**

(a) South (b) North

(c) East (d) West

(e) None of these

Answer (b) is correct.

**Explanation:** Here, we make sketch as follows:

2. **Pinki starts moving from a point P towards East. After walking some distance she turns her right. Now, her direction is definitely towards:**

(a) South (b) North

(c) East (d) West

(e) None of these

Answer (a) is correct.

**Explanation:** Pictorial presentation explains the truth.

Let us see:

3. **Raj starts walking from a point X towards West. After some distance he takes left turns and walks to a point Y. Now, his direction from X is definitely towards:**

(a) East (b) West

(c) North-West (d) South-West

(e) None of these

Answer (d) is correct.

**Explanation:** Pictorial presentation explains the truth.

Let us see:

N W = North West

N E = North East

S W = South West

S E = South East

4. **In the figure give below, Joseph is facing towards the stadium. He makes a \[\frac{3}{4}\] turn to the left. Where will he be facing now?**

(a) School (b) Railway Station

(c) Home (d) Stadium

(e) None of these

Answer (a) is correct

**Explanation:** In first \[\frac{1}{4}\] turn, Joseph will face 'Home', in second \[\frac{1}{4}\] turn, he will face 'Railway Station’, and in third \[\frac{1}{4}\] turn or in a complete \[\frac{3}{4}\] turn, he will face 'School'.

**Direction (Q. No - 5 to 7):-** Study the following information and answer the questions. In the figure given below, a boy is standing facing home.

5. **Boy will face the 'River' if he makes to his right a:**

(a) \[\frac{1}{2}\] turn

(b) \[\frac{3}{4}\] turn

(c) \[\frac{3}{8}\] turn

(d) \[\frac{5}{8}\] turn

(e) None of these

Answer (c) is correct.

6. **If boy makes \[\frac{5}{8}\] turn to his left, he will face:**

(a) River (b) Power House

(c) Highway (d) Apple Tree

(e) None of these

Answer (a) is correct.

7. **To face highway, boy has to make:**

(a) \[\frac{3}{4}\] turn to his left

(b) \[\frac{3}{8}\] turn to his left

(c) \[\frac{2}{8}\] turn to his right

(d) \[\frac{2}{8}\] turn to his left

(e) None of these

Answer (d) is correct.

** **

**Explanation:** Boy is facing his home.

(5) Boy will face the 'River' if he makes \[\left( \frac{1}{8}+\frac{1}{8}+\frac{1}{8} \right)\] turn = \[\frac{3}{8}\] turn to his right.

(6) If Boy makes \[\left( \frac{1}{8}+\frac{1}{8}+\frac{1}{8}+\frac{1}{8}+\frac{1}{8} \right)\] tum = \[\frac{5}{8}\] tum to his left, he will face 'River'.

(7) To face ‘Highway’, Boy has to make \[\left( \frac{1}{8}+\frac{1}{8} \right)\] = \[\frac{2}{8}\] turn to his left.

8. **Which one of the following is NOT correct for the given diagram?**

(a) Point A is in North-West of M.

(b) Point B is in South-East of M.

(c) Point E is in West of M.

(d) Point H is in North of M.

(e) None of these

Answer (b) is correct.

**Explanation:** Point A is in North-West of M. Point B is in South-West of M. Point E is in west of M. Point H is in north of M.

Therefore, statement in option (b) is not correct.

9. **How many letters appear the same when if rotated by \[\frac{1}{2}\] turn?**

**U N I S I Z E**

(a) 3 (b) 7

(c) 5 (d) 6

(e) None of these

Answer (c) is correct.

**Explanation:** The letters N, I, S, I and Z appear the same when if rotated by \[\frac{1}{2}\] turn.

10. **How many letters does NOT appear the same when if rotated by \[\frac{1}{2}\] turn?**

**O X A Z I N E S P**

(a) 4 (b) 1

(c) 2 (d) 3

(e) None of these

Answer (d) is correct.

**Explanation:** All letters except three letters A, E and P appear the same when if rotated by \[\frac{1}{2}\] turn.
