We see the bus from the back side. So, the bus is going ahead of us. Am I right?

Saravanan said...

Yes Thangam. You did it right...

amli said...

bus cant go ahead of us,it would only move in left or right direction as the tyre shape is round,had it been moving on ahead of us, the shape of tyres should be a single line.

Saravanan said...

Yes Amli, This is another way of looking at the solution for this problem

i think we are not able to see the door of the bus so bus is going to the right...
