The speed of a swimmer in still water is 20 m/s. The speed of river water is 10 m/s and is flowing due east. If he is standing on the south bank and wishes to cross the river along the shortest path, the angle at which he should make his strokes with respect to north is given by:

1. 45° west of north

2. 30° west of north

3. 0° west of north

4. 60° west of north

Rain is falling vertically downward with a speed of 35 m/s. Wind starts blowing after some time with a speed of 12 m/s in East to West direction. The direction in which a boy standing at the place should hold his umbrella is:
1. \(tan^{-1}\Big(\frac{12}{37}\Big)\)with respect to rain
2. \(tan^{-1}\Big(\frac{12}{37}\Big)\) with respect to wind
3. \(tan^{-1}\Big(\frac{12}{35}\Big)\) with respect to rain
4. \(tan^{-1}\Big(\frac{12}{35}\Big)\) with respect to wind
