Q. |
## If the distance from a fixed straight line is equal to the distance from a fixed point then what is the name of the conic section? |

A. | ellipse |

B. | parabola |

C. | hyperbola |

D. | circle |

Answer» B. parabola | |

Explanation: the fixed straight line is called as directrix and the fixed point is called as a focus. eccentricity is defined as the ratio of the distance from the focus to the distance from the directrix and it is denoted by e. |
