**Question:**

Which of the points P(0, 3), Q(l, 0), R(0, – 1), S(-5, 0) and T(1, 2) do not lie on the X-axis?

(a) P and R only

(b)Q and S only

(c)P,R and T

(d)Q,S and T

**Solution:**

(c) We know that, if a point is of the form (x, 0)i.e., its y-coordinate is zero, then it will lie on X-axis otherwise not. Here, y-coordinates of points P(0, 3), R (0, -1) and T (1,2) are not zero, so these points do not lie on the X-axis.
