Q. |
## The sections cut by a plane on a right circular cone are called as |

A. | parabolic sections |

B. | conic sections |

C. | elliptical sections |

D. | hyperbolic sections |

Answer» B. conic sections | |

Explanation: the sections cut by a plane on a right circular cone are called as conic sections or conics. the plane cuts the cone on different angles with respect to the axis of the cone to produce different conic sections. |
