    Answer : (2) 13 km

    Explanation:-

    In the figure-

    RE: Find the Shortest Distance From L to M. If


    The distance from starting point to end point =  (122 + 52)1/2
    = (144 + 25)1/2
    = (169)1/2
    = 13 km

    Then, the shortest distance from L to M is 13 km.

    Hence, the answer is (2) 13 km.
