(i) What are the coordinates of the points P, R and Q?

(ii) What is the difference between the abscissa of the points L and M?

Answer: (i) P(3, 2), R(3, 0), Q(3, –1) (ii) 0

Q.7. In which quadrant or on which axis each of the following points lie?

Answer: II, IV, x-axis, I, III

Q.8. Which of the following points lie on y-axis?

Answer: C, D, E, G

9.Plot the points (x, y) given by the following table. Use scale 1 cm = 0.25 units

X | 1.25 | 0.25 | 1.5 | -1.75 |

y | -0.5 | 1 | 1.5 | -0.25 |

Answer: Let X’OX and Y’OY be the coordinate axes. Plot the given points and on the graph paper. After plotting, we get the points and .
