Question

# A line segment

- goes on forever
- is a line
- is part of a line
- is a ray

Hint:

### A line segment is a part of a line that has both the ends closed or definite i.e. it does not expand infinitely from either of its ends.

## The correct answer is: is part of a line

### SOLUTION-

We know that a line segment is that part of a line that has specific endings. Hence, from the given options, option 'c' i.e. a line segment 'is part of a line' is the correct answer.

### 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.

### On the figure shown, DC is a _______.

1. A Ray refers to that part of a line which has 1 end point and other end has no end i.e. it is infinitely increasing at one end.

2. A line is a geometric object (collection) with infinitely increasing ends i.e. it has no end on both sides.

3. Since the given figure is that of a closed object, none of its sides can have any infinite ends.
