a. Origin

b. X-axis

c. Y-axis

d. Quadrants

Answer:** b**

**2) The name of the vertical line in the cartesian plane which determines the position of a point is called:**

a. Origin

b. X-axis

c. Y-axis

d. Quadrants

Answer:** c**

**3) The section formed by horizontal and vertical lines determining the position of the point in a cartesian plane is called:**

a. Origin

b. X-axis

c. Y-axis

d. Quadrants

Answer:** d**

**4) The point of intersection of horizontal and vertical lines determining the position of a point in a cartesian plane is called:**

a. Origin

b. X-axis

c. Y-axis

d. Quadrants

Answer:** a**

**5) If the coordinates of a point are (0, -4), then it lies in:**

a. X-axis

b. Y-axis

c. At origin

d. Between x-axis and y-axis

Answer:** b**

Explanation: Since, x=0 and y=-4. Hence, the point will lie in the negative y-axis 4 units far from the origin.

**6) If the coordinates of a point are (3, 0), then it lies in:**

a. X-axis

b. Y-axis

c. At origin

d. Between x-axis and y-axis

Answer:** a**

Explanation: Since, x = 3 and y = 0, therefore, the point will lie at the positive x-axis 3 units far from the origin.

**7) If the coordinates of a point are (-3, 4), then it lies in:**

a. First quadrant

b. Second quadrant

c. Third quadrant

d. Fourth quadrant

Answer:** b**

Explanation: Since x = -3 and y = 4, then if we plot the point in a plane, it lies in the second quadrant.

**8) If the coordinates of a point are (-3, -4), then it lies in:**

a. First quadrant

b. Second quadrant

c. Third quadrant

d. Fourth quadrant

Answer:** c**

Explanation: Since, x = -3 and y = -4, then if we plot the point in a plane, it lies in the third quadrant.

**9) Points (1, 2), (-2, -3), (2, -3);**

a. First quadrant

b. Do not lie in the same quadrant

c. Third quadrant

d. Fourth quadrant

Answer:** b**

**10) If x coordinate of a point is zero, then the point lies on:**

a. First quadrant

b. Second quadrant

c. X-axis

d. Y-axis

Answer:** d**

**11) Signs of the abscissa and ordinate of a point in the second quadrant are respectively **

a. +, +

b. +, –

c. -, +

d. -, –

Answer: **c**

Explanation: The signs of abscissa (x-value) and ordinate(y-value) in the second quadrant are – and + respectively.

**12) The point (-10, 0) lies in**

a. Third quadrant

b. Fourth quadrant

c. On the negative direction of the x-axis

d. On the negative direction of the y-axis

Answer: **c**

Explanation: The lies (-10, 0) lies in the negative direction of the x-axis.

**13) A quadrant in which both x and y values are negative is**

a. First quadrant

b. Second quadrant

c. Third quadrant

d. Fourth quadrant

Answer: **c**

Explanation: In the third quadrant, both the abscissa and ordinate values are negative. Example (-2, -2), which lies in the third quadrant.

**14) Abscissa of all the points on the x-axis is**

a. 0

b. 1

c. 2

d. Any number

Answer: **d**

Explanation: Abscissa of all the points on the x-axis can be any number. The coordinates of any point on the x-axis is (x, 0), where x can take any value.

**15) Ordinate of all points on the x-axis is**

a. -1

b. 0

c. 1

d. Any number

Answer: **b**

Explanation: The ordinate of all points on the x-axis is 0. We know that the coordinates of any point on the x-axis is (x, 0). Here, the abscissa can take any value and the ordinate is zero.

**16) Abscissa of a point is positive in**

a. I quadrant

b. I and II quadrants

c. II quadrant only

d. I and IV quadrants

Answer: **d**

Explanation: In a coordinate plane, x can take positive values in the first and fourth quadrants. For example, (2, 2) and (2, -4) lies on the first and fourth quadrants, respectively.

**17) Points (1, -1), (2, -2), (4, -5), (-3, -4) **

a. lie in II quadrant

b. lie in III quadrant

c. lie in IV quadrant

d. Does not lie in the same quadrant

Answer: **d**

Explanation: The point (1, -1), (2, -2) and (4, -5) lies in the fourth quadrant, where (-3, -4) lies in the third quadrant.

**18) Abscissa of all the points on the y-axis is**

a. 0

b. 1

c. -1

d. Any number

Answer: **a**

Explanation: The abscissa of all the points on the y-axis is 0. We know that the coordinates of any point on the y-axis is (0, y). Here, the ordinate can take any value and the abscissa is zero.

**19) Ordinate of all the points on the y-axis is**

a. 0

b. 1

c. -1

d. Any number

Answer: **d**

Explanation: The ordinate of all the points on the y-axis can be any number. The coordinates of any point on the y-axis is (0, y). Here, abscissa can take only the value of 0 and the ordinate can take any value.

**20) The point which lies on the y-axis at a distance of 5 units in the negative direction of the y-axis is**

a. (5, 0)

b. (0, 5)

c. (-5, 0)

d. (0, -5)

Answer: **d**

Explanation: The coordinates of any point on the y-axis is (0, y).

Hence, abscissa should be 0.

Given that, the point lies in the negative direction of the y-axis. Hence, the value of y should be negative.

Therefore, the point which lies on the y-axis at a distance of 5 units in the negative direction is (0, -5).
