**Question 1. Draw a line segment PQ =5.6 cm. Draw a perpendicular to it from a point A outside by using ruler and compass.**

**Answer:**

Given: A-Line segment PQ = 5.6 cm and a point A outside the line.

Required: To draw a 1 ar to PQ from point A.

**Steps of construction :**

(i) With A as centre and any suitable radius,

drawn an arc to cut the line PQ at points C and D.

(ii) With C and D as centres, drawn two arcs of equal radius ( > 1/2 CD)

cutting each other at B on the other side of PQ.

(iii) Join A and B to meet the line PQ at N,

then AN is the required perpendicular from the point A to the line PQ.

**Question 2. Draw a line segment AB = 6.2 cm. Draw a perpendicular to it at a point M on AB by using ruler and compass.**

**Answer:**

Given: A line AB = 6.2 cm and a point P on it.

Required: To draw an ⊥ arc to AB at point P.

**Step of Construction :**

(i) With P as centre and any suitable radius,

draw an arc to cut the line AB at points C and D.

(ii) With C and D as centres,

draw two arcs of equal radius ( > 1/2 CD) cutting each other at Q.

(iii) Join P and Q.

then QP is the required perpendicular to the line AB at the point P.

**Question 3. Draw a line l and take a point P on it. Through P, draw a line segment PQ perpendicular to l. Now draw a perpendicular to PQ at Q (use ruler and compass).**

**Answer:**

**Steps of construction :**

(i) Let AB be the given line segment.

(ii) With A as centre and any suitable radius ( > 1/2 CD)

draw arcs on each side of AB.

(iii) With B as centre and same radius [as in step (i)],

draw arcs on each side of AB to cut the previous arcs at P and Q.

(iv) Draw a line passing through points P and Q,

then the lines PQ is the required perpendicular bisector of AB and line l.

draw another circle using a compass.

Let it cut the previous circle at C and D.

(iv) Join CD. Then, CD is the axis of symmetry of AB .

**Question 5. Draw the perpendicular bisector of XY whose length is 8.3 cm.**

(i) Take any point P on the bisector drawn. Examine whether PX = PY.

(ii) If M is the mid-point of XY , what can you say about the lengths MX and MY?

**Answer:**

(a) On examination, we find the PX = PY.

(b) We can say that the length of MX is Equal to the length of MY.

**Question 6. Draw a line segment of length 8.8 cm. Using ruler and compass, divide it into four equal parts. Verify by actual measurement.**

**Answer:**

**Steps of construction :**

(i) Draw a line segment AB of length 8.8 cm.

(ii) With A as centre, using compass,

draw two arcs on either side of AB.

The radius of this arc should be more than half of the length of .
