Hiii 
Let the length from pole to man be x 
Length of shadow be y 
From similarity of triangle 
find the distance x 
x = 10.5 
Total distance of shodow from pole = 21 + 10.5 = 31.5 ft
Rate of shadow = distance / time 
for travelling 4 ft – it takes 1 sec.
1 ft – ¼ sec
21 ft – 21/4 
31.5*4/21 = Rate of shadow = 6ft /sec, 
D is correct one.
