First, we need to understand the pictorial representation. Since B is to the east of A. Mark B to the right of A(east direction). Next, it is given that B is also to the north of C. So mark C below B (north direction). Now we see that AB and C are at right angles. Now since C is to the west of D, mark D on the right side of C such that it is diagonal to B. Now disconnect A with D. We get the required direction.

Here B is in East direction with respect to A.
B is in North position with respect to C.
C is in West with respect to D.

Now we have to consider above-mentioned directional notation.

Where is the D's house with respect to A?
C is in West and B is in East directions respectively.so A shows north,D shows the south position.
We need to give the direction from A to reach D's house.
Here A has to go B then only A is reaches to D(D is showing the south-east with respect
to A using B s direction)
