Q. |
## If the distance from the directrix is greater than the distance from the focus then what is the name of the conic section? |

A. | hyperbola |

B. | parabola |

C. | ellipse |

D. | circle |

Answer» C. ellipse | |

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 the value of eccentricity is less than one hence the conic section is an ellipse. |
