### Revision Exercise ICSE **Class-6 Fundamental Concepts** Exercise – 23 B Selina Concise Mathematics Solutions

**Question -1.**

Mark a point O on a piece of paper. Using a sharp pencil and a ruler, draw a line through the point O. Then draw one more line through the point O. How many lines can you draw through O?

Write a statement regarding your observations.

**Answer-1**

We take a point O on a piece of paper. Using a sharp pencil, we draw a line OA through O.

another line OB is drawn as shown in the figure.

We can draw an infinite number of lines from O as we know that an infinite number of lines can be drawn through a point in aplane,

**Question -2.**

Mark two points A and B on a plain sheet “ of paper. Using a sharp pencil and a ruler, draw a line through points A and B. Try to draw one more line through A and B. What do you observe ?

Write a statement regarding your observations.

**Answer-2**

Two points A and B are marked On the plain sheet of paper. Using pencil, draw a line through there two points.

We cannot draw any other line joining them as only one line can be drawn passing through two fixed (given) points in a plane.

**Question -3.**

Draw two straight lines on a sheet of paper so that the lines drawn :

(i) intersect each other.

(ii) do not intersect.

(iii) appear to intersect when extended.

**Answer-3**

wo straight lines are drawn on the sheet of a paper

**(i)** Intersecting each other:

**(ii)** Not intersecting each other:

**(iii)** Intersect each other when produced them:

**Question- 4.**

Draw a figure to show that :

(i) points A, B and C arc collinear.

(ii) lines AB, CD and EF are concurrent.

**Answer-4**

**(i)** We know that three or more points are collinear if they lie on the same straight line. Therefore the required figure (line) is given below on which three points A, B and C lie

**(ii)** If three or more lines pass through a common point, these are called concurrent lines. Below is given the figure, in which three lines AB, CD and EF are passing (or intersecting each other) at O.

**Question -5.**

In your note-book, draw two rays with the same initial point O and going in opposite directions. Write the special name for the final figure obtained.

**Answer-5**

Two rays OA and OB are drawn through O in opposite direction as given below.

There two rays form a straight line

**Question- 6.**

In each figure, given below, write the number of line segments used :

**Answer-6**

**(i)** In the given figure, there as Ten (10) line segments which are AB, BC, CD, DE, EF, FG, GH, HI, IJ and JA.

**(ii)** In the given figure, there are 12 line segments which are AB, BC, CD, DE, EF, FG, GH, HI, IJ, JK, KL and LA.

**(iii)** In the given figure, there are 13 line segments which are AB, BC, CD, DE, EF, FG, GH, HI, IJ, JK, KL, LM and MA.

**(iv)** In the given figure, there are 7 line segments which are AB, BC, CD, DE, DA, DB, CE.

**Question- 7.**

In a circle, point P is its centre and PA = PB = radius of the circle. Where do points A and B lie ?

**Answer-7**

A circle is given with centre P and PA = PB = radius of the circle.

∵ The radii of a circle are equal there they lie on the circumference of the circle In other words, path of a point which is equidistant from a fixed point is the circumference of a circle. The fixed point is called the centre and equidistance is the radius.

**Question -8.**

Draw a four-sided closed figure, in which:

(i) all the sides are equal and each angle is 90°.

(ii) opposite sides are equal and each angle is 90°.

Write the special name of each figure drawn.

**Answer-8**

**(i)** In this four sided closed figure all the sides are equal and each angle is 90°. This figure is called a square. In ABCD, AB = BC = CD = DA and ∠A = ∠B =∠C = ∠D = 90°

**(ii)** In this four sided closed figure opposite sides are equal and each angle is 90°. This figure is called a rectangle In rectangle ABCD, AB = CD and BC = AD

∠A = ∠B = ∠C = ∠D = 90°.
