Write whether the following statements are true or false:
(a) The point (−5, 0) lies on x-axis.
(b) The point (0, −3) lies in quadrant II.
The point (−5,0) lies on the x-axis, as any point whose ordinate is 0 lies on the x-axis .Therefore, the given statement is correct.
The point (0,-3) lies on the y-axis. So, the given statement is false.
