The correct answer should be (D). From the information given above, let's make some conclusions. Distance from Karan's house to Neha's house is 3,000m, or 3km. Distance to Karan's house to the Shopping Mall is four times the distance to Neha's house, which is 3,000x4=12,000m or 12km. Let's find the answers to questions A and B. Question A's answer is 12km, because on Karan's journey, he went from his house to the Shopping Mall. Question B's answer is the distance from Neha's house to the Shopping Mall multiplied by 2, because she travelled the distance two times. The distance from Neha's house to the Shopping Mall is equal to the total distance of all the places subtracted by the distance from Karan's house to Neha's house, which is equal to (12km-3km)x2=9x2=18km. Therefore, the correct answer is (D)
