# Consider the following figure of line MN. Say whether the following statements are true or false in context of the given figure

(a) Q, M, O, N, P are points on the line MN

(b) M, O, N are points on a line segment MN

(c) M and N are endpoints of line segment MN

(d) O and N are endpoints of line segment OP

(e) M is one of the endpoints of line segment QO

(f) M is a point on ray OP

(g) Ray OP is different from ray QP

(h) Ray OP is different from ray OM

(i) Ray OM is not opposite to ray OP

(j) O is not an initial point of OP

(k) N is the initial point of NP and NM

**Solution:**

We use the concept of points and lines to answer the given question.

(a) Q, M, O, N, P are points on the line MN is a true statement.

(b) M, O, N are points on a line segment MN is a true statement.

(c) M and N are endpoints of line segment MN is a true statement.

(d) O and N are endpoints of line segment OP is a false statement.

(e) M is one of the endpoints of line segment QO is a false statement.

(f) M is a point on ray OP is a false statement.

(g) Ray OP is different from ray QP is a true statement.

(h) Ray OP is different from ray OM is a false statement.

(i) Ray OP is not opposite to ray OM is a false statement.

(j) O is not an initial point of OP is a false statement.

(k) N is the initial point of NP and NM is a true statement.
