# On plotting the points O (0, 0), A (3, 0), B (3, 4), C (0, 4) and joining OA, AB, BC and CO which of the following figures is obtained?

a. Square

b. Rectangle

c. Trapezium

d. Rhombus

**Solution:**

By plotting the points O (0, 0), A (3, 0), B (3, 4), C (0, 4) we get

The point (0, 0) is the origin

A (3, 0) lies on the positive direction of x-axis

B (3, 4) lies in the I quadrant

C (0, 4) lies on the positive direction of y-axis

By joining OA, AB, BC and CO we get a rectangle.

Therefore, the figure obtained is a rectangle.

✦ **Try This: **Point (0, 1) lies a. on the x –axis b. in the second quadrant c. on the y-axis d. in the fourth quadrant
