    Answer: (4) 5 kms

    Explanation:-

    According to question look in the below figure – 

    RE: How far is he from starting point?


    Then, the the distance between starting point to end point = sqrt. (4^2 + 3^2)
     = sqrt. (16 + 9)
     = sqrt.(25)
     =  5 km 

    Then, he is 5 km far from starting point. 

    Hence, the correct answer option (4) 5 kms.
