• 1.

### What it the degree of a straight line?

• A.

100

• B.

360

• C.

90

• D.

180

• E.

None of the above

D. 180
Explanation
The degree of a straight line is 180. In geometry, a straight line is defined as a line that extends infinitely in both directions and has no curvature. The sum of the interior angles of any straight line is always 180 degrees. Therefore, the correct answer is 180.

### When lines are parallel how many times do they intersect?

• A.

None

• B.

Once

• C.

Twice

• D.

An infinite amount of times

A. None
Explanation
When lines are parallel, they never intersect. This is because parallel lines are always equidistant and never converge or cross each other. Therefore, the correct answer is "none."

• 3.

### A point in a plane can have how many lines going through it?

• A.

One

• B.

None

• C.

Exactly two

• D.

Infinite amount

D. Infinite amount
Explanation
A point in a plane can have an infinite amount of lines going through it because any line can be drawn through a point in a plane. No matter which direction or angle the line is drawn, it will always pass through the point. Therefore, there is no limit to the number of lines that can pass through a single point in a plane.

• 4.

### A line segment...

• A.

Goes on forever

• B.

Has two endpoints

• C.

Is the same as a line

• D.

None of the above

B. Has two endpoints
Explanation
A line segment is a part of a line that is bounded by two distinct endpoints. Unlike a line, which extends infinitely in both directions, a line segment has a finite length and does not go on forever. Therefore, the correct answer is that a line segment has two endpoints.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### An obtuse angle is...

• A.

Between 0 and 90 degrees

• B.

Between 90 and 180 degrees

• C.

90 degrees

• D.

Between 180 and 360 degrees

B. Between 90 and 180 degrees
Explanation
An obtuse angle is a type of angle that measures greater than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees. It is larger than a right angle (90 degrees) but smaller than a straight angle (180 degrees).
