A. | conic |

B. | rectangle |

C. | square |

D. | polygon |

Answer» A. conic | |

Explanation: the locus of a point moving in a plane such that the distance between a fixed point and a fixed straight line is always constant. the fixed straight line is called as directrix and the fixed point is called as the focus. |
