The Concept of Directions

In this type of questions, a successive follow up of directions and/or distance is formulated and on the basis of given information you are required to ascertain the final direction with respect to the starting point or the shortest distance between the starting point and the final point.

Sometimes both the final direction and the distance covered are asked. Thus, in this test, the questions consist of sort of direction and/or distance puzzle. Obviously, such questions are meant to judge the candidate’s ability to trace, follow and perceive the direction, described in somewhat complicated language, correctly. In order to solve such questions correctly you must have the knowledge or directions on the plane of a paper.

At the same time, it is necessary to sketch out the directions as per information provided in the question in proper sequence. An error at any point would alter your answer choice.

The diagram given below shows the four main directions (cardinals) and four subsidiary directions on plane of paper:
