statement are true and false? In each case give a valid reason for saying so

r : Circle is a particular case of an ellipse.

#### Solution

Equation of an ellipse: $\frac{x^2}{a^2} + \frac{y^2}{b^2} = 1$

If we put a = b = 1, then we obtain $x^2 + y^2 = 1$

, which is an equation of a circle. Therefore, a circle is a particular case of an ellipse.

Thus, the statement is true.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
