    An athlete took forward and backward steps of equal distance to warm up before his race. After taking 10 steps total, he was back at his starting position.

    If each step is of equal distance, then steps forward-steps backward should be 0, right?

    I believe so, since A would result in 4 steps backwards from starting position, B would lead to 2 steps backwards, and D would lead to 2 steps forward from starting position.
