Q. |
## A regular cone is resting on H.P on its base. A section plane is perpendicular to H.P and V.P cutting the cone such that the plane is not having axis of cone in it. The section would be |

A. | ellipse |

B. | hyperbola |

C. | parabola |

D. | triangle |

Answer» C. parabola | |

Explanation: given the section plane is perpendicular to h.p and v.p and axis of cone perpendicular to h.p. so if a regular cone is been cut by plane which is parallel to its axis and plane is not coinciding with the axis then section formed will be parabola. |
