**Exercise 7.1**

**Multiple Choice Questions (Q. No. 1-9)**

**Question. 1** The distance of the point *P *(2,* *3) from the *x*-axis is

(a) 2

(b) 3

(c) 1

(d) 5

**Answer. (b) **

**Explanation: **

Suppose *P *(*a*, *b*) is any point on the cartesian plane in first quadrant as shown below:

Then,

• *a* is the perpendicular distance from the *y*-axis

• *b* is the perpendicular distance from the *x*-axis

So, distance of the point P* *(2, 3) from the *x*-axis = 3

Distance of the point P* *(2, 3) from the *y*-axis = 2.** **

**Question. 2** The distance between the points A* *(0*, *6) and B (0, ‒2) is

(a) 6

(b) 8

(c) 4

(d) 2

**Answer. (b) **

**Explanation: **

**Question. 3** The distance of the point P* *(‒6, 8) from the origin is

**Question. 4 **The distance between the points (0, 5) and (-5, 0) is

(a) 5

(b)

(c)

(d) 10

**Answer. (b)**** **

**Explanation: **

**Question. 5 **If *AOBC *is a rectangle whose three vertices are A (0, 3), O* *(0, 0) and B* *(5, 0), then the length of its diagonal is

**Answer. (c) **

**Explanation: **

**Question. 6 **The perimeter of a triangle with vertices (0, 4), (0, 0) and (3, 0) is

**Answer. (b)**

**Explanation: **

Distance between *A *(0, 4) and *O *(0, 0) + Distance between *O *(0, 0) and *B *(3, 0) + Distance between *A *(0*, *4) and *B *(3, 0) = 3 + 4 + 5 = 12.

**Question. 7** The area of a triangle with vertices *A (3, *0), *B* (7, 0) and *C* (8, 4) is

(*a*) 14

(b) 28

(c) 8

(d) 6

**Answer. (c) **

**Explanation: **

**Question. 8** The points (−4, 0), (4, 0) and (0, 3) are the vertices of a

(a) right angled triangle

(b) isosceles triangle

(c) equilateral triangle

(d) scalene triangle

**Answer. (b)**

**Explanation: **

**Question. 9 **The point which divides the line segment joining the points (7, -6) and (3, 4) in ratio 1 : 2 internally lies in the

(a) I quadrant

(b) II quadrant

(c) III quadrant

(d) IV quadrant
