Q.1. Write whether the following statements are true or false? Justify your answer.

(i) Point lies in the first quadrant.

(ii) Points andlie in the same quadrant.

(iii) The coordinates of a point whose ordinate is and abscissa is are

(iv) A point lies on y-axis at a distance of units from the x-axis. Its coordinates are

(v) is a point in the II quadrant.

Answer: (i) False, because if ordinate of a point is zero, the point lies on the x-axis.

(ii) False (1, –1 ), lies in IV quadrant and (–1, 1) lies in II quadrant.

(iii) False, because in the coordinates of a point abscissa comes first and then the ordinate.

(iv) False, because a point on the y-axis is of the form (0, y).

(v) True, because in the II quadrant, signs of abscissa and ordinate are –, +, respectively.
