statement-1: If the distances of a point Pfrom te line x+y+2=0 and point (3,4) are same then the locus P will be a parabola.
Statement-2: If the distances of a point P from a fixed line and a fixedpoint are same then the locus of P will be a parabola.
explain why u feel the answer is A or B or C or D
Ans is c as the locus is a parabola if the point doesn't lie on the given line.
if the fixed point lies on the fixed line, then the locus is perpendicular to line at dat point
A right R wrong....Reason shud be "point P from a fixed line and a fixedpoint NOT ON THE LINE are same"....as can be seen 3,4 doesn't lie on the line x+y+2=0 so it indeed gives a parabola....
hope this helps....cheers!!
