Q. |
## The line which passes through the focus and perpendicular to the major axis is |

A. | minor axis |

B. | latus rectum |

C. | directrix |

D. | tangent |

Answer» B. latus rectum | |

Explanation: the line bisecting the major axis at right angles and terminated by curve is called the minor axis. the line which passes through the focus and perpendicular to the major axis is latus rectum. tangent is the line which touches the curve at only one point. |
