MCQs from CBSE Class 9 Maths Chapter 3: Coordinate Geometry

**1.** If the coordinates of a point are (0, -4), then it lies in:

a) X-axis

b) Y-axis

c) At origin

d) Between x-axis and y-axis

**Answer**

Answer: (b)

Explanation: Since, x=0 and y=-4. Hence, the point will lie in negative y-axis 4 units far from the origin.

**2.** If the coordinates of a point are (3, 0), then it lies in:

a) X-axis

b) Y-axis

c) At origin

d) Between x-axis and y-axis

**Answer**

Answer: (a)

Explanation: Since, x = 3 and y = 0, therefore, the point will lie at positive x-axis 3 units far from the origin.

**3.** If the coordinates of a point are (-3,4), then it lies in:

a) First quadrant

b) Second quadrant

c) Third quadrant

d) Fourth quadrant

**Answer**

Answer: (b)

Explanation: Since, x = -3 and y = 4, then if we plot the point in a plane, it lies in second quadrant.

**4.** If the coordinates of a point are (-3,-4), then it lies in:

a) First quadrant

b) Second quadrant

c) Third quadrant

d) Fourth quadrant

**Answer**

Answer: (c)

Explanation: Since, x = -3 and y = -4, then if we plot the point in a plane, it lies in the third quadrant.
