Answer: (4) 22 km

Explanation:-
Let the total distance of the journey be X km.
A man travelled 2/11 of his journey by train,
Then, the journey travelled by the train = 2 X/11

17/22 by car,
Then, the journey travelled by the car = 17X/22

Total journey travelled by the train and car = X (2/11 + 17/22)
= X(4 + 17)/22
= 21 X/22
Remaining journey = X – 21X/22
= (22X – 21X)/22
= X/22

Then, X/22 = 1
X = 22 km

Then, the total distance of the journey is 22 km.

Hence, the answer is (4) 22 km.
