Question

# A line can intersect a parabola maximum of ___.

- one time
- two times
- three times
- four times

Hint:

### A parabola is a plane curve which is mirror symmetrical and is approximately U shaped. A line is a straight one dimensional figure having no thickness and extended infinitely to both directions.

We are asked to find how many times maximum could a line intersect a parabola.

## The correct answer is: two times

### Step 1 of 1:

We know that a line is extended to infinity in both the direction and a parabola is a U shaped symmetric structure. So, the maximum number of times a line could intersect a parabola is two times.

A parabola could be opened downwards, upwards or sideways. The center may not always be at the origin.
