Question

# On the figure shown, DC is a _______.

- ray
- line
- point
- line segment

Hint:

### Line segment refers to a part of a straight line that is bounded by 2 distinct end points. i.e. A line segment has 2 well defined end (definite) points.

## The correct answer is: line segment

### GIVEN-

Given shape = Rhombus ABCD.

TO FIND-

Nature of side DC on the given figure.

SOLUTION-

We know that a rhombus is a closed figure with 4 equal sides. And we know that for a closed figure, the ends of all its sides must have well defined (definite) end point.

Hence, all sides of the given figure are line segments.

FINAL ANSWER-

Option 'd' i.e. 'line segment' is the correct answer to the given question.

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.
