### Solution(By Examveda Team)

Man's Movement :

The last position of the man is P and OEP is a Right angled triangle in which
EP = 3 km and OE = 4 km
Thus,
OP = √(32 +42)
OP = √25
OP = 5 km

1. OE should be 3km and EP should be 4km. They have just done a typing error. If they interchange the numbers, then the explanation would be correct. Still, since the answer is correct as 5km, the explanation doesn’t matter. You just have to understand it properly.

2. This is wrong oe=3km and ep=4km

3. How we get OE =4KM .....

4. s its write but in online its showing answer as 3 so which is the correct answer

5. This sum solved in right manner with good proof

6. Yes, I agree for this.This is absolute explanation.

7. Good explanations.
