The farmer takes 40 * to cover4 10 = 40 m.

In2 min and 20 * (140 *), he will cover a distance = (40/40) x 140 = 140m

Therefore, the farmer completes **140/40 = 3.5**rounds (3 complete rounds and a half round) of the field in 2 min and 20 *.

That means, after 2 min 20 *, the farmer will be at the opposite end of the starting point.

Now, there can be twoextreme cases.

**Case I:**Starting point is a corner point of the field.

In this case, the farmer will be at thediagonally opposite corner of the field after 2 min 20 *.

Therefore, the displacement will be equal to the diagonal of the field.

Hence, the displacement will be$sqrt(10^2+10^2)=14.1m$

**Case II:**Starting point is the middle point of any side of the field.

In this case the farmer will be at the middle point of the opposite side of the field after 2 min 20 *.

Therefore, the displacement will be equal to the side of the field, i.e., 10 m.

For any other starting point, the displacement will be between 14.1 m and 10 m.
