This quiz will find out what you know about points, lines, line segments, and rays.

• 1.

### What is this?

• A.

A point

• B.

A line

• C.

Line segment

• D.

Ray

C. Line segment
Explanation
The word "segment" is important, because a line normally extends in both directions without end.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### What is this?

• A.

a point

• B.

A line

• C.

Line segment

• D.

Ray

B. A line
Explanation
A line has no ends! If it does have ends it would be called a "Line Segment".

Rate this question:

• 3.

### A_______ is a line with a start point but no end point (it goes to infinity)

• A.

A line

• B.

A ray

• C.

A line segment

• D.

A point

B. A ray
Explanation
If it has just one end it is called a "Ray"

Rate this question:

• 4.

### ___________ is an exact location. It has no size, only position. ?

• A.

A line

• B.

A line segment

• C.

A point

• D.

A ray

C. A point
Explanation
A point is an exact location in space that has no size or dimensions. It represents a specific position and does not have any length, width, or height. Unlike other options like a line, line segment, or ray, which have length and extend infinitely in one or both directions, a point is simply a single location in space.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### A straight line that goes on forever in one direction?

• A.

A point

• B.

A line segment

• C.

A ray

• D.

A line

C. A ray
Explanation
A ray is a straight line that extends infinitely in one direction from a specific point. It has a starting point but no ending point. This is different from a line segment, which has two distinct endpoints. Therefore, a ray is the correct answer for a straight line that goes on forever in one direction.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### A straight line that goes on forever in two directions?

• A.

A line

• B.

A point

• C.

A line segment

• D.

A ray

A. A line
Explanation
A line is a straight path that extends infinitely in both directions. It has no endpoints and continues indefinitely. Unlike a line segment or a ray, a line does not have a specific starting or ending point. It can be thought of as a never-ending series of points that are all in a straight line.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### A part of a line that has two endpoints?

• A.

A point

• B.

A line

• C.

A line segment

• D.

A ray

C. A line segment
Explanation
A line segment is a part of a line that has two distinct endpoints. It is a straight path between two points and does not extend indefinitely in either direction. Unlike a line, which continues infinitely in both directions, a line segment has a definite length and can be measured. Therefore, a line segment is the correct answer for this question.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### A __________ is a location in space.

• A.

A line segment

• B.

A ray

• C.

A point

• D.

A line

C. A point
Explanation
A point is a location in space that has no size or dimension. It is represented by a dot and is used to indicate a specific position or coordinate in a geometric figure or system. Unlike other options like a line segment, ray, or line, a point does not have any length, width, or direction. It is simply a single position in space, making it the correct answer for this question.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### What is this?

• A.

A point

• B.

A line

• C.

A ray

• D.

A line segment

D. A line segment
Explanation
A line segment is a straight path between two points that has a definite length. It is different from a line because it has a specific starting and ending point. In this case, the given image is showing a straight path with two distinct endpoints, indicating that it represents a line segment.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### What are these called?

• A.

Lines

• B.

Points

• C.

Line segments

• D.

Rays

B. Points
Explanation
The given options are lines, points, line segments, and rays. Out of these, points are the correct answer because they are the basic building blocks of geometry and have no dimensions or length. Lines, line segments, and rays are all made up of points, but points themselves do not have any length or width.
