** Question 4:**

(a) 1

(b) 2

(c) 4

(d) 5

**Solution 4:**

Let the required point be (h, k)

The distance from the straight line x – 2y + 1 = 0

Any one of equations (1) combined with any one of equations (2) will yield 4 points.

Hence, the correct option is (c).

**Question 5:**

The straight lines x + y = 0, 5x + y = 4 and x + 5y = 4 form

(a) an isosceles triangle

(b) an equilateral triangle

(c) a scalene triangle

(d) a right angled triangle

**Solution 5:**

Their points of intersection are (–1, 1) (1, –1) and (2/3, 2/3)

Using distance formula the distance between AB and BC is same so, ABC is isosceles triangle.

Hence, the correct option is (a).
