```							The boat will reach the other side in shortest time when it will have its velocity towards the other side that is it will have its velocity perpendicular to the the direction of flow of river. But as the river is also flowing the boat will drift in the direction of flow of river.Width of the river = 200mVelocity of boat in still water = 8m/sSo, time taken by boat to reach the other side of the river = (200)/(8) = 25sVelocity of water = 4m/sSo, drift = 4*25 = 100mSo, boat will reach 100m far from the point directly opposite to the starting point.
