    Answer: (1). 32 km

    The total distance travelled by man is 80 km, the time was taken to complete this distance is 7 hours, the distance is travelled in partly by on foot at rate 8 km/h or by bicycle 16km/h.

    So the journey is complete in 7 hours. therefore, the distance travelled by on foot is 32 km in 4 hours and next 48 km distance is travelled by bicycle in 3 hours. Sinc, total distance travelled is 80 km and the total time was taken = 7 hours.
    Total distance = 32 km + 48 km = 80 km and Total time taken is 4 hours + 3 hours = 7 hours.
