X is to the East of Y, and Z is to the North of Y. In what direction is X with respect to Z ?
a. West-North b. East-North
c. East-South d. West-South

Answer
d. West-South

Hi Debayan,

For the purpose of illustration, I am using following convention for direction,

      N

W      E

     S

 

Now since X is to the east of Y, it will be on the right hand side of Y,

 

     Y        X

 

Now since Z is to the north of Y, Z will be above Y. So new configuration is,

 

     Z

     Y        X

Now it is easy to see that X is in "South-west" direction with respect to Z.

It is still not clear to me. It is clear from the figure you have shown that the answer should be South-East not South-West as you have told.

Kindly clarify.

Hi Debayan,

Thanks for reporting this.

Sorry for typo, yes it should be south-east.

We will fix the question in our database.
