# Draw any line segment PQ. Take any point R not on it. Through R, draw a perpendicular to PQ. (use ruler and set-square)

**Solution:**

With the help of a ruler and a set-square, we can draw a line segment.

Let us do construction step by step.

Step 1: First step is to draw a given line segment PQand then mark a point R outside the line segment PQ. we can observe from the figure.

Step 2: Next step is to place a set square on PQ such that one of its right angles arm aligns along PQ

Step 3: Now, we need to place the ruler along the edge opposite to the right angle of the set square.

Step 4: Next step is to hold the ruler fixed and then slide the set square along the ruler such that the point R touches the other arm of the set square.

Step 5: Last step is to draw a line along this edge of the set square which passes through point R. Now, we got the required line perpendicular to PQ
