A few questions on distance and/or direction are frequently posed in practically all Multiple Choice Type Examinations, and the Bank P.O. Examination is no exception. In this sort of question, a series of directions and/or distances are given, and you must determine the final direction with regard to the initial position or the shortest distance between the starting point and the end location based on the supplied information. Sometimes the final direction as well as the distance travelled are requested. As a result, the question in this test is a form of direction and/or distance conundrum. Obviously, such questions are designed to assess the candidate’s ability to accurately trace, follow, and understand the direction, which is expressed in somewhat difficult terms. To successfully answer such problems, you must be familiar with instructions on a plane of paper. At the same time, it is required to sketch down the directions in the correct sequence based on the information supplied in the question. Any mistake would change your answer option.
