Solution

(a)

We will reach at 2, if we move 4 numbers to the right of −2.

(b)

We will reach at −4, if we move 5 numbers to the left of 1.

(c)

Clearly, −13 is to the left of −8. Therefore, we should move towards the left direction.

(d)

Clearly, −1 is to the right of −6. Therefore, we should move towards the right direction.
