Investigate: Use strip and fasteners to make a triangle and a quadrilateral.
Try to push inward at any one vertex of the triangle. Do the same to the quadrilateral. Is the triangle distorted? Is the quadrilateral distorted? Is the triangle rigid?
Why is it that structures like electric towers make use of triangular shapes and not quadrilateral?

Solution:

No, the triangle is not distorted but the quadrilateral is distorted and also the triangle is rigid.
Structures like electric towers make use of triangular shape so that they could not be distorted and they could be rigid.

Question-2:

Consider the following figure of line MN. Say whether following statements are true or false in the context of the given figure:
(a) Q, M, O, N, P are points on the line \overline{ MN} .
(b) M, O, N are points on a line segment \overline {MN }.
(c) M and N are end points of line segment \overline {MN} .
(d) O and N are end points of line segment \overline {OP }.
(e) M is one of the end points of line segment \overline {QO }.
(f) M is point on ray OP.
(g) Ray OP is different from ray OP.
(h) Ray OP same as ray OM.
(i) Ray OM is not opposite to ray OP.
(j) O is not an initial point of NP and NM.

Solution:

(a) True
(b) True
(c) True
