**Question:**

The points (- 5, 2) and (2, — 5) lie in the

(a) same quadrant

(b) II and III quadrants, respectively

(c) II and IV quadrants, respectively

(d) IV and II quadrants, respectively

**Solution:**

(c) In point (-5,2), x-coordinate is negative and y-coordinate is positive, so it lies in II quadrant and in point (2, – 5), x- coordinate is positive and y-coordinate is negative, so it lies in IV quadrant.
