Q. |
## The length through perpendicular gives the shortest length from a point to the line. |

A. | true |

B. | false |

Answer» A. true | |

Explanation: the statement given here is right. if we need the shortest distance from a point to the line, then drawing perpendicular along the point to a line is the best method. since the perpendicular is the line which has points equidistant from points either side of given line. |
