# Mark the correct alternative in each of the following:

Question:

Mark the correct alternative in each of the following:

1. Which one of the following is a correct statement?
(a) Decimal expansion of a rational number is terminating
(b) Decimal expansion of a rational number is non-terminating
(c) Decimal expansion of an irrational number is terminating
(d) Decimal expansion of an irrational number is non-terminating and non-repeating

Solution:

The decimal expansion of an irrational number is non-terminating and non- repeating. Thus, we can say that a number, whose decimal expansion is non-terminating and non- repeating, called irrational number. And the decimal expansion of rational number is either terminating or repeating. Thus, we can say that a number, whose decimal expansion is either terminating or repeating, is called a rational number.

Hence the correct option is $d$.
