Geometry is about the properties and their structures which can be further categorize into:

  • Plane Geometry: Plane geometry is about flat shapes such as lines, circles and triangles ... shapes can be drawn on paper.
  • Solid geometry: Solid geometry is about three-dimensional objects such as cubes, prisms, cylinders, and spheres.


The point is a mark of position. A dot represents a point. We denote the point with the letters A, B, P, Q etc. The point has no length, breadth or thickness.

Incidence Axioms on Lines

incidence axiom

  • The line contains an infinite number of points
  • An infinite number of lines can be drawn to pass a certain point
  • One line can be drawn to pass the two points provided for point A and B.

Collinear Points

Three or more points are called collinear points, if there is a line that contains them all.


Intersecting Lines

Two lines with the same point are called intersecting lines. A common point in two given lines is called their meeting point. In the illustration, lines AB and CD meet at O.


Parallel Lines

The two lines l and m in the plane are said to be parallel, if they do not have the same point and are labeled as l || m. The distance between two parallel lines remains the same.

parallel lines


Simple closed curves made up of line segments are called polygons. The line segments that form a polygon are the sides of a polygon. Any two sides with a common end point are called adjacent sides. The point of cross-cutting is called the vertex. The end points on the same side of the vertices are adjacent. The part of the line that connects any two adjacent vertices to the polygon is diagonal. The ABCDEF is a polygon.

abcdef polygon

The line sections AB, BC, CD, DE, DF, and FA are known as polygon ABCDEF components.

Any two sides with similar ends are called adjacent sides. AB and BC are adjacent sides with a common endpoint B.

The meeting place of the two sides of the polygon is known as the vertex. In the ABCDEF polygon, the sides of AB and BC meet in point B. Thus, point B is called the vertex of the polygon. Similarly, some vertices are A, C, D, E, and F.

A line that connects any two adjacent vertices of a polygon is known as its diagonal. In the next polygon ABCDEF, the diagonals are AC, AD, AE, BD, BE, BF, CE, CF, and DF.

  3. Ray
  4. None

Ans. Correct answer is 1

A ray has only one end point.

Q2. Number of end points a line segment has

  1. Three
  2. None
  3. Two
  4. One

Ans. Correct answer is 3

Line segment is a part of line having two end points.

Q3. Number of lines that can be drawn from two distinct points on a plane

  1. Two
  2. One
  3. Zero
  4. Infinite

Ans. Correct answer is 2

We can draw only one line from two points.

Q4. PQ = 3 cm; RS = 6.2 cm. Then the measure of line segment whose length is equal to sum of PQ and RS is

  1. 3.2 cm
  2. 4 cm
  3. 4.2 cm
  4. 9.2 cm

Ans. Correct answer is 4

Clearly sum = 3 + 6.2 = 9.2 cm
