Question 1: What is the equation for a circle?

1. y = mx + c
2. y2 = r2 – x2
3. rx2y2 = rx2ry2 - ry2x2
4. None of the above

Answer: b. y2 = r2 – x2

Explanation:

The Equation of circle is:

```x2 + y2 = r2
y2 = r2 – x2
```

Question 2: Which among the following is the correct equation for an ellipse?

1. y = mx + c
2. y2 = r2 – x2
3. rx2y2 = rx2ry2 - ry2x2
4. None of the above

Answer: c. rx2y2 = rx2ry2 - ry2x2

Explanation:

The Equation of an ellipse is:

```ry2x2 + rx2y2 = rx2ry2
rx2y2 = rx2ry2 - ry2x2```

Question 3: Which of the following properties is followed by the ellipse?

1. 4 – symmetry property
2. 8 – symmetry property
3. 6 – symmetry property
4. All of the above

Answer: a. 4 – symmetry property

Explanation:

An ellipse is identical through all its quadrant values. i.e., if you place the origin at the center of the ellipse, then it will have the mirror images for its points on all the four quadrants. Hence, the ellipse is said to have the 4-symmetry property.

Question 4: Which of the following are the methods to define a circle?

1. Using polynomial method.
2. Using polar coordinates methods.
3. Both a. and b.
4. None of the above

Answer: c. Both a. and b.

Explanation:

A circle can be defined from both the stated options: Using the polynomial method as well as the polar coordinates method.

Question 5: "The mid-point algorithm is used for both circle drawing as well as ellipse drawing, but the procedure is different for both of them."
Based upon the above statement, determine whether the following condition is true or false.
"The circle follows 8 - symmetry property whereas the ellipse follows 4 – symmetry property."

1. True
2. False

Explanation:

The circle is identical along all its octants whereas an ellipse is identical long all its quadrants. Hence the given statement: "The circle follows 8 - symmetry property whereas the ellipse follows 4 – symmetry property" is true.
