(a) Five points
(b) A line
(c) Four rays
(d) Five-line segments
A point determines a location. It is usually denoted by a capital letter
A line segment corresponds to the shortest distance between two points. The line segment joining points X and X is denoted by XY.
A line segment extended on both side to indefinitely is called line
A ray is a portion of line starting at a point and going in one direction endlessly.
a) D, E, O,B,C
c) , , ,
d) , , , ,
