Question

# A line joining two vertices of a quadrilateral that are not adjacent is called a

- vertical line
- horizontal line
- diagonal
- oblique diagonal line

Hint:

### A line joining 2 non-adjacent corners of a quadrilateral is called a diagonal. However, Oblique lines are simply those lines that are non-parallel, non-perpendicular.

## The correct answer is: diagonal

### SOLUTION-

Since the given line matches the definition of a diagonal, as mentioned in the hint section, the given line is a diagonal.

FINAL ANSWER-

Option 'c' i.e. 'diagonal' is the correct answer to the given question.

### A straight path with points in a plane that continues without end in both directions.

A path is not a point but a collection of points in a straight path. Hence, option d is eliminated.

Also, a line segment and a ray are both parts of a line where a line segment has fixed or definite ends on both sides whereas a ray has one end fixed and the other end extends infinitely.

Hence, options b & c are also eliminated.

### Identify the figure.

Intersecting lines are those that meet each other at a certain point on the plane whereas perpendicular lines are those which meet each other at a 90° angle.

Since in the given diagram the 2 lines never meet each other, options b & c are eliminated and since the lines also appear to be equidistant from each other, option d is also eliminated.
