Solution

## The correct option is C 10 mAnkit walks 30 m towards north, after walking 30 m he turned left i.e. towards west and walked 40 m.Then takes a left turn i.e. towards south and moves 30 m.So, now he is in the same line and 40 m far from where he started.Then he again turned left i.e. towards East and walked 50 m.Thus, he passes through his original starting point after covering 40 m and hence he is 10 m East from the starting point.Hence, option 'D' is correct.
