Question 5 The distance between the points A (0, 6) and B (0, โ€“2) is (A) 6 (B) 8 (C) 4 (D) 2 Distance between A (0, 6) and B (0, โ€“2) = โˆš((๐‘ฅ2 โˆ’๐‘ฅ1)2+(๐‘ฆ2 โˆ’๐‘ฆ1)2) = โˆš(( 0โˆ’0)2+(โˆ’2 โˆ’6)2) = โˆš(02+(โˆ’8)2) = โˆš(0+64) = โˆš64 = โˆš(8^2 ) = 8 units So, the correct answer is (B)
