Suppose, Saurav starts for his college from his house at Kolkata. He walks 3 KM east, turns right and covers 2 KM to reach his college. After college, he turns right and walks 3 KM to see the doctor. In which direction is the doctor's house from Saurav's house? Explain

Options:
a) North
b) East
c) South
d) West

House------east(3km)---------->Turns right(So goes south)
|
|2km

Doctor<-----west(3km)---------Turns right(So goes west)


So from Saurav's house, the doctor's house is towards SOUTH.

Am I right?

Venami's drawing:
Code: sql
House ----east(3km)---->Turns right(So goes south)
.                                        |
.                                        |2km
.                                        |
.                                        |
Doctor <----west(3km)---Turns right(So goes west)
 

So the answer is south
