Q. |
## When the plane cuts the cone at angle parallel to the axis of the cone, then is formed. |

A. | hyperbola |

B. | parabola |

C. | circle |

D. | ellipse |

Answer» A. hyperbola | |

Explanation: when the plane cuts the cone at an angle parallel to the axis of the cone, then the resulting conic section is called as a hyperbola. if the plane cuts the cone at an angle with respect to the axis of the cone then the resulting conic sections are called as ellipse and parabola. |
