# The graph of every linear equation in two variables need not be a line. Is the given statement true or false? Justify your answer

**Solution:**

We know that

Graph of a __linear equation in two variables__ is a line.

For example -

Let us consider a __linear equation__ x + y = 4

It can be written as

y = 4 - x

If x = 0, y = 4 - 0 = 4

If x = 2, y = 4 - 2 = 2

If x = 4, y = 4 - 4 = 0

So the graph will be

Therefore, the statement is false.
