Question: Which direction is Sunny facing now ?

Statements:

  1. If Sunny turns to his right and again turns to his right, he will be facing North.
  2. If Sunny walks some distance and turns left and again walks some distance, then his face will be towards left of Dinesh who is facing South.

[A]. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
[B]. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
[C]. Either I or II is sufficient
[D]. Neither I nor II is sufficient
[E]. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

From I, we conclude that Sunny is facing South, since a person facing South shall face North on turning to his right, twice.

From II, we know that after walking, Sunny shall face towards left of Dinesh facing South i.e. East and a person walking southwards shall face East on turning to 'his left.

Thus, Sunny is facing South.

I think the direction in II should be towards North as Sunny's face is towards left of Dinesh facing South i.e. Sunny is facing West and not East and hence his original direction is North facing.
