Question

# Mateo says a ray is straight and goes on forever in two directions. His statement is incorrect.

One of the following should Mateo replace "a ray" with to make the statement correct.

- line
- point
- angle
- line segment

Hint:

### A line is a collection of points on a plane that follows a straight path and the ends keep expanding indefinitely in the opposite directions.

## The correct answer is: line

### GIVEN-

Incorrect statement i.e. 'A ray is straight and goes on forever in two directions'.

TO FIND-

Word to replace from the given incorrect statement to make it correct.

SOLUTION-

We know that a ray has one end closed and the other expands infinitely. Hence, the given statement is incorrect.

Also, an angle is the intersection of 2 rays. Hence, option c is eliminated.

A line segment has both the end closed that is definite and hence, option d is also eliminated.

A line refers to a collection of points in straight path where both the ends keep expanding in the opposite directions.

Hence, option 'a' i.e. 'line' is the correct answer.

### 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.
