Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which among the following is not a three-dimensional shape?

    • A.

      Circle

    • B.

      Cube

    • C.

      Cylinder

    • D.

      Cuboid

    Correct Answer
    A. Circle
    Explanation
    A circle is not a three-dimensional shape because it lies in a plane and only has two dimensions - length and width. It does not have any depth or height, which is a characteristic of three-dimensional shapes. On the other hand, a cube, cylinder, and cuboid are all three-dimensional shapes as they have length, width, and height.

  • 2. 

    Select all two dimensional shapes.

    • A.

      Circle

    • B.

      Cube

    • C.

      Pentagon

    • D.

      Square

    • E.

      Triangle

    • F.

      Prism

    • G.

      Cone

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Circle
    C. Pentagon
    D. Square
    E. Triangle
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Circle, Pentagon, Square, and Triangle. These shapes are all two-dimensional because they lie completely in a single plane and have only length and width, without any depth or thickness. The Cube, Prism, and Cone are three-dimensional shapes because they have depth, height, and width.

    A two dimensional shape with six sides is called as

    Correct Answer(s)
    Hexagon
    Explanation
    A two-dimensional shape with six sides is called a hexagon. The term "hexa" refers to six, and "gon" refers to sides. Therefore, a hexagon is the correct answer for a shape with six sides.

    A circle is a polygon.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A circle is not considered a polygon because a polygon is defined as a closed figure with straight sides. A circle, on the other hand, is a closed curve with all points equidistant from the center. Therefore, a circle does not meet the criteria to be classified as a polygon.

  • 5. 

    A line has two end points.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A line does not have two endpoints. A line is a straight path that extends infinitely in both directions, so it does not have a specific starting and ending point. Therefore, the statement that a line has two endpoints is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A ray has one end point.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A ray is a part of a line that starts at a specific point (called the endpoint) and extends infinitely in one direction. Therefore, it is correct to say that a ray has one endpoint.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    _______ is used to represent a point.

    Correct Answer
    Dot
    Explanation
    A dot is used to represent a point. A dot is a small, round symbol that is often used to indicate the location or position of a point in mathematics or on a graph. It is a simple and concise way to visually represent a single point without any additional markings or symbols.

  • 8. 

    The basic 2D shape of a cube is 

    • A.

      Triangle

    • B.

      Square

    • C.

      Rectangle

    • D.

      Pentagon

    Correct Answer
    B. Square
    Explanation
    A cube is a three-dimensional shape that has six square faces. Each face of a cube is a square, so the basic 2D shape of a cube is a square.
