Q. |
## Axes are called conjugate axes when they are parallel to the tangents drawn at their extremes. |

A. | true |

B. | false |

Answer» A. true | |

Explanation: in ellipse there exist two axes (major and minor) which are perpendicular to each other, whose extremes have tangents parallel them. there exist two conjugate axes for ellipse and 1 for parabola and hyperbola. |

- There are 2 circles say A, B. A is smaller than B and they are not intersecting at any point. Where will be the intersection point of internal tangents for these circles?
- While drawing projections if a triangle is parallel to horizontal plane, top should be drawn first and projections are drawn to it to get front view.
- If we know the major and minor axes of the ellipse, the first step of drawing the ellipse, we draw the axes each other.
- The lines parallel to isometric axes are called lines.
- The top view, front view and side view of a triangle parallel to vertical plane, circle parallel to profile plane and rectangle parallel to horizontal plane respectively are

- How many internal tangents are there for two circles?
- There are 2 circles say A, B. A has 20 units radius and B has 10 units radius and distance from centers of A and B is 40 units. Where will be the intersection point of external tangents?
- The length of line parallel to one of the plane of projection planes will show same length if view of that line is drawn on to the plane.
