Geometry Quizzes & Trivia

Are you looking for the ultimate geometry vocabulary quiz? One of the best ways that a person can test their ability to do something is by regularly testing themselves. In the quiz below, you will not only get to test your understanding of some of the basics surrounding some common geometry terms but learn some new ones as well. How about you try it out and share it with others.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is a branch of mathematics that deals with points, lines, planes, solids and examines their properties?

    • A.

      Point

    • B.

      Geometry

    • C.

      Plane

    • D.

      Ray

    Correct Answer
    B. Geometry
    Explanation
    Geometry is the branch of mathematics that deals with points, lines, planes, and solids and examines their properties. It involves studying the relationships and measurements of these geometric figures and applying various principles and theorems to solve problems. Geometry is essential in various fields such as architecture, engineering, and physics, as it helps in understanding the spatial relationships and shapes of objects in the physical world.

    What is a set of points that form a straight path that goes on forever in both directions?

    • A.

      Skew

    • B.

      Line Segment

    • C.

      Line

    • D.

      Point

    Correct Answer
    C. Line
    Explanation
    A line is a set of points that form a straight path that extends infinitely in both directions. It has no endpoints and continues indefinitely. A line can be represented by a straight line segment with arrows at both ends to indicate that it extends infinitely. It is different from a line segment, which has two distinct endpoints and a finite length. A line is also different from a point, which represents a single location in space. Skew is not a correct answer as it refers to two lines that do not intersect and are not parallel.

    What is a part of a line defined by 2 endpoints?

    • A.

      Intersecting

    • B.

      Ray

    • C.

      Line Segment

    • D.

      Point

    Correct Answer
    C. Line Segment
    Explanation
    A line segment is a part of a line that is defined by two endpoints. It is a straight path between these two points and does not extend infinitely in either direction like a line. A line segment has a definite length and can be measured. It is different from a ray, which extends infinitely in one direction from its endpoint, and from a line, which extends infinitely in both directions. A point is a location in space and does not have any length.

    What are intersecting lines that cross each other and form right angles?

    • A.

      Perpindicular

    • B.

      Intersecting

    • C.

      Ray

    • D.

      Skew

    Correct Answer
    A. Perpindicular
    Explanation
    Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect each other and form right angles. They cross each other at a 90-degree angle, creating four right angles where they meet. This is what distinguishes them from intersecting lines, which can cross each other at any angle. Rays are half-lines that extend infinitely in one direction, while skew lines are lines that do not intersect and are not parallel. Therefore, the correct answer is perpendicular.

    What is a set of points that have infinite length and width?

    • A.

      Parallel Lines

    • B.

      Intersecting

    • C.

      Line

    • D.

      Plane

    Correct Answer
    D. Plane
    Explanation
    A plane is a flat, two-dimensional surface that extends infinitely in all directions. It has infinite length and width, making it a set of points with these characteristics. Parallel lines, intersecting lines, and lines do not have infinite length and width, so they are not the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What is a point of a line that has an endpoint and continues forever in one direction?

    • A.

      Ray

    • B.

      Line Segment

    • C.

      Line

    • D.

      Parallel Lines

    Correct Answer
    A. Ray
    Explanation
    A ray is a point of a line that has an endpoint and continues forever in one direction. Unlike a line segment, which has two endpoints and a specific length, a ray only has one endpoint and extends infinitely in one direction. A line, on the other hand, extends infinitely in both directions. Parallel lines are lines that never intersect and are always the same distance apart.

  • 7. 

    What are two or more lines in the same plane that will never touch.

    • A.

      Ray

    • B.

      Perpindicular

    • C.

      Parallel Lines

    • D.

      Plane

    Correct Answer
    C. Parallel Lines
    Explanation
    Parallel lines are two or more lines in the same plane that will never touch each other. They have the same slope and will continue indefinitely without intersecting. This is because they are always equidistant from each other and do not converge or diverge. Therefore, parallel lines will never touch or intersect, making them the correct answer in this case.

  • 8. 

    What are lines that cross each other?

    • A.

      Intersecting

    • B.

      Parallel

    • C.

      Perpindicular

    • D.

      Skew

    Correct Answer
    A. Intersecting
    Explanation
    Intersecting lines are lines that cross each other at a specific point. This means that they have one point in common. In contrast, parallel lines never cross each other and are always at the same distance apart. Perpendicular lines intersect at a 90-degree angle, forming right angles. Skew lines, on the other hand, do not intersect and are not parallel or perpendicular to each other. Therefore, the correct answer is "Intersecting" as it accurately describes lines that cross each other.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What are lines that are not in the same plane?

    • A.

      Point

    • B.

      Skew

    • C.

      Parallel

    • D.

      Ray

    Correct Answer
    B. Skew
    Explanation
    Skew lines are lines that do not lie in the same plane and do not intersect. They are not parallel because parallel lines lie in the same plane and do not intersect. Skew lines, on the other hand, are neither parallel nor intersecting. Therefore, the correct answer is skew.

    What is an exact Location in space?

    • A.

      Star

    • B.

      Point

    • C.

      Line Segment

    • D.

      Line

    Correct Answer
    B. Point
    Explanation
    An exact location in space refers to a specific position that has no dimension or size. It is represented by a single point, which has no length, width, or height. A point is the most basic element in geometry and is used to define the position of objects in space. It does not have any physical existence but is used as a reference to describe the location of other objects or points in space.
