Direction Sense Test Reasoning Material for All Competitive Exams | PDF Download
In this test, the questions consist of a sort of direction puzzle. A successive follow-up of direction is formulated and the candidate is required to ascertain the final direction or the distance between two points. The test is meant to judge the candidate’s ability to trace, follow and sense the direction correctly.
The figure shows the four main directions (North N, South S, East E, West W) and the four cardinals (North east NE, North west NW, South east SE, South west SW) to help the candidates know the directions.
Example – Deepak starts walking straight towards east. After walking 75 m he turns to the left and walks 25 m straight. Again he turns to the left and walks a distance of 40m straight, again he turns to the left and walks a distance of 25 m. How far is he from the starting point?
(1) 140 m (2) 35 m (3) 115 m (4) 25 m (5) None of these
Solution- (2) The movements of Deepak are as shown in the figure Clearly, EB = DC = 40 m … Deepak’s distance from the starting point A = (AB – EB) = (75 – 40) = 35 metres
