## direction

Laxman went 15 kms from my house, then turned left and walked 20 kms. He then turned east and walked 25 kms and finally turning left covered 20kms. How far was he from his house?

Bharat started to walk East from a point. He went 1 KM, turned North, walked 1 KM, turned South, walked 1 KM and found that he was on the spot he started from. Where was Bharat?

Bharat is 1 KM from his starting point in the east direction i.e from where he started his journey to north.

No. It is given that Bharat is back exactly where he started from. Otherwise the puzzle is trivial.
