Solution

## The correct option is A 6 units from the x-axis and 7 units from the y-axis. The x-coordinate or abscissa is the distance from the y-axis. The y-coordinate or ordinate is the distance from the x-axis. The Point P (7, -6 ) has x - coordinate 7 and y - coordinate -6. ∴ The distance of the point from x-axis is 6 units and fromy-axis is 7 units.
