Q. |
## If the distance from the focus is 3 units and the distance from the directrix is 3 units, then what is the name of the conic section? |

A. | ellipse |

B. | hyperbola |

C. | circle |

D. | parabola |

Answer» D. parabola | |

Explanation: eccentricity is defined as the ratio of the distance from the focus to the distance from the directrix and it is denoted by e. therefore, by definition, e = 3 ÷ 3 = 1. hence the conic section is called as a parabola. |
