**Q 1 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate.**

**(2, 9), (2, 1)**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common x coordinate 2.

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the y coordinates, i.e., 9 − 1 = 8 units.

**Step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 8 units.

**Q 2 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate.**

**(3, 10)(9, 10)**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common y coordinate 10

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the x coordinates, i.e., 9 − 3 = 6 units.

**Step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 6 units.

**Q 3 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate**

**(−3, 6), (−3, 12)**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common x coordinate −3.

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the y coordinates, i.e., 12 − 6 = 6 units

**Step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 6 units

**Q 4 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate.**

**(4, −8), (9, −8)**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common y coordinate −8.

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the x coordinates, i.e., 9 − 4 = 5 units.

**Step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 5 units.

**Q 5 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate.**

**(−2, −6), (−9, −6)**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common y coordinate −6.

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the x coordinates, i.e., −2 – (−9) = −2 + 9 = 7 units.

**Step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 7 units.

**Q 6 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate.**

**(7, 0), (13, 0)**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common y coordinate 0

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the x coordinates, i.e., 13 − 7 = 6 units.

**Step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 6 units

**Q 7 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate.**

**(0, −6), (0, −11)**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common x coordinate 0.

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the y coordinates, i.e., −6 – (−11) = −6 + 11 = 5 units.

**Step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 5 units.

**Q 8 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate.**

**(1, 11), (8, 11)**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common y coordinate 11.

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the x coordinates, i.e., 8 − 1 = 7 units.

**Step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 7 units

**Q 9 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate.**

**(3, 9), (3, −6)**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common x coordinate 3.

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the y coordinates, i.e., 9 – (−6) = 9 + 6 = 15 units.

**Step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 8 units.

**Q 10 - Find the distance between the pair of points given below that share a common coordinate.**

**(2, −8), (11, −8)**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1** − The given pair of points have a common y coordinate −8.

**Step 2** − The distance between the points is the difference between the x coordinates, i.e., 11 − 2 = 9 units.

**step 3** − So, the distance between the points = 9 units
