Solution:

in given graph we can observe three figures named as, OABC, PQRS and LMK.

Now,

Vertices of figure OABC

O (0, 0), A (2, 0), B (2, 3) and C (0, 3)

Vertices of figure PQRS

P (4, 3), Q (6, 1), R (6, 5) and S (4, 7)

Vertices of figure LMK

L (7, 7), M(10, 8) and K(10,5)

4. State whether True or False. Correct that are false.

(i) A point whose x coordinate is zero and y-coordinate is non-zero will lie on the y-axis.

Solution: True

(ii) A point whose y coordinate is zero and x-coordinate is 5 will lie on y-axis.

Solution: False, it will lie on x axis

(iii) The co-ordinates of the origin are (0, 0).

Solution: True
