**Q 1 - Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(r, −s)**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (r, −s).

**Step 2** − Since the signs of the x and y coordinates of the point (r, −s) are positive and negative respectively, the point lies in the quadrant 4.

**Q 2 - Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(−y, −z)**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (−y, −z).

**Step 2** − Since the signs of the x and y coordinates of the point (−y, −z) are negative and negative respectively, the point lies in the quadrant 3.

**Q 3 - Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(y, z)**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (y, z).

**Step 2** − Since the signs of the x and y coordinates of the point (y, z) are positive and positive respectively, the point lies in the quadrant 1.

**Q 4 - Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(−m, n)**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (−m, n).

**Step 2** − Since the signs of the x and y coordinates of the point (−m, n) are negative and positive respectively, the point lies in the quadrant 2.

**Q 5 - Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(a, 0)**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (a, 0).

**Step 2** − Since the sign of the x coordinate of the point (a, 0) is positive and y coordinate is zero, the point lies on the positive x axis.

**Q 6 -Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(−a, b)**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (−a, b).

**Step 2** − Since the signs of the x and y coordinates of the point (−a, b) are negative and positive respectively, the point lies in the quadrant 2.

**Q 7 - Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(0, −b)**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (0, −b).

**Step 2** − Since the sign of the x coordinate of the point (0, −b) is zero and y coordinate is negative, the point lies on the negative y axis.

**Q 8 - Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(a, −b)**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (a, −b).

**Step 2** − Since the signs of the x and y coordinates of the point (a, −b) are positive and negative respectively, the point lies in the quadrant 4.

**Q 9 - Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(x, y)**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (x, y).

**Step 2** − Since the signs of the x and y coordinates of the point (x, y) are positive and positive respectively, the point lies in the quadrant 1.

**Q 10 - Name the quadrant or axis of the following point whose signs are given:**

**(−x, −y)**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1** − Coordinates of the given point are (−x, −y).

**Step 2** − Since the signs of the x and y coordinates of the point (−x, −y) are negative and negative respectively, the point lies in the quadrant 3.
