To do:

We have to find in which quadrant or on which axis the points \( (-2,4),(3,-1),(-1,0) \), \( (1,2) \) and \( (-3,-5) \) lie.

Solution:

To find the quadrant or axis of the points $(-2, 4), (3, -1), (-1, 0), (1, 2)$ and $(-3, -5)$, plot the points on the graph, as shown below.


From the above graph, we can conclude that

Point $(-2, 4)$ lies in the $2$nd quadrant.

Point $(3, -1)$ lies in the $4$th quadrant.

Point $(-1, 0)$ lies on negative X-axis.

Point $(1, 2)$ lies in the $1$st quadrant.

Point $(-3, -5)$ lies in the $3$rd quadrant.
