# A point which lies on both the axis is __________

(a) (0, 0)

(b) (0, 1)

(c) (1, 0)

(d) (1, 1)

**Solution:**

As evident from the graph below we can state that the point which lies on both the axis is the point (0,0). The point is also called the origin and is the point where the __x-axis__ and the y-axis intersect or meet each other.

The origin is the only point which lies on both x-axis and y-axis.

**✦ Try This: **Which of the following points lie on the y-axis: (0,1), (2,0), (0,5), (2, 3), (0, 3), (2,0), (3,5), (6,0), (0, 7), (5,0),(0,10)

Points which lie on the y axis have their x-ordinate as zero. Therefore the points which lie on the y-axis are (0,1), (0,5), (0,3), (0,7), and (0,10)
