Solution:
3).       It is clear from the diagram that now she is 15 metre East from her starting point.
4). Required distance = AD = √[(AE)2  + (DE)2]
= √[(8)2  + (6)2] = √(64 + 36) = √100 = 10 Km
5). Due to an accident, the pointer showing East, started showing South. It means, the pole has been rotated through 90° clockwise. So, when she was travelling towards West, actually it was North.
