Answer: (2) 30 km

Explanation:-
Raju drives in North direction = 25 km
He turns left means he drives in West direction = 5 km
He reaches point ‘O’
He turns to right means he drive in North direction = 5 km
And he drives in East direction = 5 km
Then, the total distance from staring point = 25 + 5 + 5 + 5
= 40 km
Before he drives  in west direction 5 km and in last he drives in East direction 5 km
Then, the actual distance from staring point = 25 – 5 + 5 + 5
= 25 + 5
= 30 km
Hence, the answer is (2) 30 km.
