# If y coordinate of a point is zero, then this point always lies

a. in I quadrant

b. in II quadrant

c. on x - axis

d. on y - axis

**Solution:**

It is given that

y-coordinate is zero

Abscissa can be any number x and the ordinate is zero

In the point (x, 0) x can take positive or negative value

(x, 0) lies in the x-axis

Therefore, the point lies on the x-axis.

✦ **Try This: **Point (2, 0) lies a. on the x-axis, b. in the second quadrant, c. on the y-axis, d. in the fourth quadrant

## If the coordinate of a point is zero, then this point always lies a. in I quadrant b. in II quadrant c. on x - axis d. on y - axis

**Summary:**

The coordinate axes divide the plane into four parts called quadrants. If the y coordinate of a point is zero, then this point always lies on the x - axis
