Solution

## The correct option is A 45 m towards SouthAccording to the question, Point A is 30 m to the South of point B. Point C is 20 m to the East of point A. Point D is 15 m to the South of point C. Point D is exactly midway between points E and F in such a manner that point E. D and F form a horizontal straight line of 40 m. Point E is to the West of point D, so it is clear that point F is to the East of point D. And point E is 20 m to the West of point D and point F is 20 m to the East of point D. We have to find out the direction and distance of point E from point B. Joint point A and point E by dotted lines. Hence, point E is (30 + 15 = 45 m) to the South of point B.
