In the coordinate system, the ordinate is the second component of an ordered pair. For example, if (x, y) is an ordered pair, then y is the ordinate here. An ordered pair is used to denote a point in the Cartesian plane and the first coordinate (x), in the plane, is called the abscissa.
The distance of a point from y-axis scaled with the x-axis is called abscissa or x coordinate of the point. The distance of a point from x-axis scaled with the y-axis is called ordinate. The abscissa and ordinate all together are called coordinates.
Using the information, we can conclude the following:
The signs of the coordinates in
First quadrant = (+, +)
Second quadrant = (-, +)
Third quadrant = (-, -)
Fourth quadrant = (+, -)
Hence, the abscissa of the point is positive in the first and fourth quadrant
So, the correct option is (b)
