the key is to understand how a map represents distance. Each cell on the map represents an area 500,000 times the size of the area represented by the same cell on a 1:50 000 map. In other words, the same cell on a 1:500 000 map represents 500,000 cells on a 1:50 000 map.

I'm going to guess that the question is talking about a scale of 1:500,000, which is the standard for topographic maps. If the road is 10km long, it will be 0.2mm long on the map.
