Solution

## The correct option is B 116 milesGiven: Distance of fuel pump from the starting point = 56 miles Distance further traveled = 76 miles Step 1: Total distance traveled = 76 + 56 = 126 = 2 miles Step 2: Subtract the distance that he overshoots from the total distance he travels. i.e, Final destination after he overshoots = 126 - 16 = 116 miles Therefore, option (b) is the correct answer.
