Question

Which of the following statements are true and which are false? In each case give a valid reason for saying so.

r: Circle is a particular case of an ellipse.

Solution

The equation of an ellipse is,

`x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 = 1`

If we put a = b = 1, then we obtain

x2 + y2 = 1, which is an equation of a circle

Therefore, circle is a particular case of an ellipse.

Thus, statement r is true.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
