Question 1.
Which of the following are models for perpendicular lines?
(a) The adjacent edges of a table top.
(b) The lines of a railway track.
(c) The line segments forming the letter ‘L’.
(d) The letter V.
Solution:
(a) Yes, the adjacent edges of a table top make a model of perpendicular lines.
(b) No, since parallel lines never intersect Railway track lines do not make a model of perpendicular lines.
(c) Yes, the line segments forming L are perpendicular lines.
(d) No, the line segments forming V, do not represent perpendicular lines.

Question 2.
Let \(\overline{\mathrm{OP}}\) be the perpendicular to the line segment \(\overline{\mathrm{XY}}\). Let \(\overline{\mathrm{PQ}}\) and \(\overline{\mathrm{XY}}\) intersect in the point A. What is the measure of \(\angle PAY \)?
Solution:
Since, \(\overline{\mathrm{OP}}\) ⊥ \(\overline{\mathrm{XY}}\).
Angle between them = 90°
Thus. \(\angle PAY \) = 90°

CE = EG
(b) Yes, PE bisects CG.
(c) \(\overline{\mathrm{BH}}\) and \(\overline{\mathrm{DF}}\)
(d) (i) Yes
(ii) Yes
(iii) Yes
