# Point (-3, 5) lies in the

a. first quadrant

b. second quadrant

c. third quadrant

d. fourth quadrant

**Solution:**

We know that

In the second quadrant, every point has its abscissa negative and ordinate positive

In the point (-3, 5)

Abscissa i.e. -3 is negative

Ordinate i.e. 5 is positive

So it lies in the second quadrant

Therefore, the point lies in the second quadrant.
