According to the question after facing to the east he turns to the left and goes to 10m means moving to the north direction. After he turns to the right means east direction & goes $5$ m, then 5 m south means he is facing now south. now move to the west and goes $5$ m more.
So from the original point, he is facing to the north.
North Direction, option $C$ is correct.

Left from East means towards North.

So, $10m$ North, $5m$ East, $5m$ South, $5m$ West.

So, he is still $5m$ North from his starting position.
