Question

# In which quadrant does the point (2,-4) lies.

- 1
^{st} - 2
^{nd} - 3
^{rd} - 4
^{th}

^{st}^{nd}^{rd}^{th}Hint:

### For First Quadrant Both X and Y must be non-negative, For Second Quadrant X is non-positive and Y is non-negative, For third Quadrant Both X and Y must be non-positive and For Fourth Quadrant X must be non-negative and Y must non-positive.

## The correct answer is: 4^{th}

### Step1: For First Quadrant.

For the point to lie in the first quadrant:

The X-Coordinate must be non-negative, and the Y-Coordinate must be non-negative.

Step2: For Second Quadrant

For the point to lie in second quadrant:

The X-Coordinate must be non-positive, and the Y-Coordinate must be non-negative

Step3: For third quadrant:

For the point to lie in the third quadrant:

The X-Coordinate must be non-positive, and the Y-Coordinate also must be non-positive.

Step4: For Fourth Quadrant

For the point to lie in the fourth quadrant:

The X-Coordinate must be non-negative, and the Y-coordinate must be non-positive.

Here in the given question we can easily see that the X-Coordinate is positive and the Y-Coordinate is negative. So, the given point lies in the Quadrant.
