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

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

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:

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:

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

a) Origin
b) X-axis
c) Y-axis

(b)
