Question

What is the locus of a point P which moves on one side of a straight line XY, so that the angle XPY is always equal to 90o?

Options

A) the perpendicular bisector of XY

B) a right-angled triangle

C) a circle

D) a semi circle

The correct answer is D.

Explanation:

Since XY is a fixed line and
XPY = 90o P is on one side of XY
P1P2P3......Pn are all possible cases where
XPY = 90o the only possible tendency is a semicircle because angles in semicircle equals 90o
