Solution

The position vector of point R(-11,-9), \[\overrightarrow{OR} = - 11\hat{ i} - 9 \hat{j}\]

 Component of \[\overrightarrow{OR}\] along x-axis = a vector of magnitude 11 having its direction along the negative direction of x-axis.
  Component of \[\overrightarrow{OR}\]  along y-axis = a vector of magnitude 9 having its direction along the negative direction of y-axis.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
