## NCERT Exemplar Class 8 Maths Chapter 12 Introduction to Graphs

**Multiple Choice Questions**

**Question. 1 Comparison of parts of a whole may be done by a**

** (a) bar graph (b) pie chart**

** (c) linear graph (c) line graph**

** Solution.**

(b) There are various ways to represent and compare the data. One of them is pie chart.

Pie chart is a pictorial representation of the data in which the whole is represented by a circle and the parts, by non-intersecting adjacent sectors.

Hence, comparison of parts of a whole may be done by a pie chart.

**Question. 2 A graph that displays data that changes continuously over periods of time is 451**

** (a) bar graph (b) pie chart**

** (c) histogram (d) line graph**

** Solution.**

(d) Line graph is an important way to represent and compare the data which varies continuously. •

A line graph displays the relation between two varying quantities.

In a line graph, we connect all the points by a line segment while in bar graph and histogram, we use rectangles of uniform width.

**Question. 3 In the given graph the coordinates of point P are**

**Solution.**

(c) The foot of the perpendicular drawn from the indicated point on X-axis is at a distance of 3 units from the origin.

The x-coordinate of the point is 3.

Again, the perpendicular drawn from the given point on Y-axis meets the Y-axis at a point which is at a distance of 2 units from origin.

The y-coordinate of the point is 2.

Hence, the coordinates of the point are (3,2).

**Question. 4 In the given graph the letter that indicates the point (0,3) is**

**Solution.**

(c) The letter that indicates the point (0,3) is R as it lies on the Y-axis at a distance of 3 units from the origin.

The coordinates of the point P and Sare (3,0) and (3,3), respectively.

**Question. 5 The point (3,4) is at a distance of**

** (a) 3 from both the axes**

** (b) 4 from both the axes**

** (c) 4 from the X-axis and 3 from Y-axis**

** (d) 3 from X-axis and from Y-axis**

** Solution.**

(c) We know that, the x-coordinate is the distance of the point from Y-axis and that of y-coordinate is the distance from X-axis. .

Hence, the point (3,4) is at a distance of 4 from the X-axis and 3 from Y-axis.

**Question. 6 A point which lies on both the axes is**

** (a) (0,0) (b) (0,1) (0(1,0) (d) (1,1)**

** Solution.**

(a) We know that, the axes are two mutually perpendicular lines intersecting each other at the point (0,0) also known as the origin.

Hence, the point which lies on both the axes is (0,0).

**Question. 7 The coordinates of a point at a distance of 3 units from the X-axis and 6 units from the y-axis are**

** (a) (0,3) (b) (6,0) (c) (3,6) (d) (6,3)**

** Solution.**

(d) We know that, the x-coordinate is the distance of the point from /-axis and the y-coordinate is the distance of the point from X-axis.

Hence, the coordinates of the required point are (6,3).

**Question. 8 In the given figure, the position of the book on the table may be given by**

**Solution.**

(b) The book is at a distance of 3 units from Y-axis and 7 units from X-axis.

Hence, the position of the book on the table is given by (3,7).

**Question. 9 Data was collected on a student’s typing rate and graph was drawn as shown below. Approximately how many words had this student typed in 30 s?**

** Solution.**

(c) Observing the graph, we see that the graph intersects the line x = 30 just below the point (30,30), which is the intersection of the lines* = 30 and y- 30.

Since, the X-axis represents the time (in seconds) and the Y-axis represents the number of words typed, therefore we conclude that the students had typed approximately 28 words In 30 s.

**Question. 10 Which graph of the following represents the table below?**

** **

**Solution.**

(d) Here, the lengths of sides of squares are represented on X-axis and their perimeters are represented on Y-axis.

The points are (1,4),(2,8),(3,12),(4,16) and(5,20).

Now, observing all the 4 graphs carefully we see that these points lie on the graph(d).

**Question. 15 The horizontal and vertical lines in a graph are usually called________and**

** Solution.** X-axis, Y-axis

To draw a graph we need pairs of points known as coordinates and to plot a point we require two mutually perpendicular axes, also known as the X-axis (horizontal line) and the Y-axis (vertical line).

**Question. 16 The process of fixing a point with the help of the coordinates is known**

** as________of the point.**

** Solution.** plotting

To locate the exact position of a point we need two coordinates viz, the x-coordinate and the y-coordinate and this process of finding the position or representing the numbers on a graph sheet with the help of the coordinates is known as plotting of the point.

Since, y-coordinate is zero, i.e. the distance of the point from X-axis is zero.

Hence, the points lies on the X-axis.

**Question. 19 For the point (5,2), the distance from the X-axis is________units.**

** Solution.** 2

We know that, the y-coordinate represents the distance of the point from the X-axis. ;Hence, the point (5,2) is at a distance of 2 units from the X-axis.

**Question. 20 The x-coordinate of any point lying on the y-axis will be________.**

In the ordered pair (2,4), i.e. coordinates of a point, the second number is called as the y-coordinate of the point.

Hence, the y-coordinate of (2,4) is 4

**Question. 22 In the point (4,7), 4 denotes the________.**

First number (coordinate) of the ordered pair is called as the x-coordinate or abscissa. Hence, in the point (4,7),4 denotes the x-coordinate.

**Question. 23 A point has 5 as its x-coordinate and 4 as its y-coordinate. Then, the**

** coordinates of the point are given by________.**

** Solution.** (5,4)

To denote a point in 2-D, we use two numbers viz. the x-coordinate, the y-coordinate.

In the ordered pair, the x-coordinate is written in the first slot and the y-coordinate in the second slot separated by comma. Hence, the required point is (5,4).

Two ordered pairs are equal, if they have same numbers at corresponding slot, i.e. x-coordinates are equal and Y-coordinates are equal. Hence, (3,5) and (5,3) are different points.

**Question. 34 The y-coordinate of any point lying on the X-axis will be zero.**

** Solution.** True

The distance of the points which lie on X-axis, will be zero from the X-axis, i.e. y-coordinate is zero for the points lying on X-axis.

** **

** Solution.**

(a) In the pair (0,5), the second number also known as ordinate represents the distance from X-axis, i.e. 5.

(a) In the pair (2,3), 2 the first number, also known as abscissa represents the distance from Y-axis that is 2.

(b) We have the coordinates (4,8). Clearly, ^coordinate is double of x-coordinate.

(c) We have the coordinate (3,7), where x-coordinate = 3 and y-coordinate = 7

Evidently, y-coordinate = 2 x *x*-coordinate + 1

(d) (0,0) are the coordinates of origin.
