**Basic Geometrical Ideas**

**Answer**

- $\mathrm{\angle}$B, $\mathrm{\angle}$C

Explanation: Adjacent angles have a common side. In this figure side BC contain two angles which are angle B and angle C making them adjacent angles.

- $\mathrm{\angle}$B, $\mathrm{\angle}$C
- Count less

Explanation: through a sinlge point infinite number of lines can be passed by Euclid’s axiom.

- Count less
- on the angle

Explanation: point P lies on the ray QP of the angle therefore P is on the angle

- on the angle
- (a) ${270}^{\circ},{90}^{\circ}$

Explanation:${270}^{\circ},{90}^{\circ}$

- (a) ${270}^{\circ},{90}^{\circ}$
- half its diameter

Explanation: Radius is from the center of the circle to the circle’s edge. The diameter is edge to edge with the line going through the radius. Diameter is twice the length of the radius or 2r where r is the radius of the circle.

- half its diameter
- $\to $ (b)
- $\to $ (a)
- $\to $ (d)
- $\to $ (c)

- Point
- length
- simple
- two

- True
- False. A line segment is a part of a line that has two end points
- False. A line is a straight path that is endless
- False Two lines in a plane intersect in a point or parallel.

- a, c
- b, d, e

- 2
- Not possible.

- O is the centre of the circle.
- $\overline{\mathrm{O}\mathrm{A}},\overline{\mathrm{O}\mathrm{B}},\overline{\mathrm{O}\mathrm{C}}$ are three radii of the circle.
- $\overline{AC}$ is the diameter of the circle.

- U and N
- U
- D
- A, Q, S and B
- A, P, T and B

- Line segment: A straight line drawn from any point to any other point is called as line segment.
- Line: Line is a straight path of points that goes on forever in two directions. It has infinite length, but no breadth and height.
- Intersecting lines: Interesting lines are lines that pass through the same point.
- Parallel lines: Parallel lines are never cross and always stay the same distance apart.
