(e) the point of intersection of lines m and t.

Answer:

B

(f) the point of intersection of lines r and t.

Answer:

D

Question 6.

A, B, C are any three points in a plane. Join them in pairs. How many lines can you get if:

(a) A, B, C are collinear?

Answer:

Only one line is obtained when A, B, C are collinear.

### DAV Class 6 Maths Chapter 8 Worksheet 1 Notes

Line: A straight path extendable endlessly in both the directions is called line.

\(\overline{\mathrm{AB}}\) is the representation of line AB

Ray: Ray has one end point and extendable is one direction.

\(\overline{\mathrm{AB}}\) represents a ray

Line segment: Line segment is a part of a line. It has two end points and definite length.

Plane: Plane is a flat surface which can be extended infinitely in all directions.

Collinear points: The points which lie on the same line are called collinear points.

Here P, Q, R are collinear points.

Non-collinear points:

The points which do not he on the same straight line are called non-collinear points.

Here P, Q, R, S are non collinear points.

Intersecting lines: The lines which cut. each other at. a point are called intersecting lines.

Here lines \(\overrightarrow{\mathrm{AB}}\) and \(\overleftrightarrow{\mathrm{CD}}\) intersect at O.

Infinite number of lines can pass through a point.

Parallel lines:

The lines which never intersect each other even on extending infinitely in both directions are calLed parallel lines.

Here \(\overleftrightarrow{\mathrm{AB}} \| \overleftrightarrow{\mathrm{CD}}\)

Concurrent lines:

The lines which pass through the same point are called concurrent lines.

Here all the lines pass through the same point O.
