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.
