In the figure above, the coordinates of point V are

(A) (-7,5)
(B) (-5,7)
(C) (5,7)
(D) (7,5)
(E) (7,-5)

From the diagram it follows that the x-coordinate of V is 7, and the y-coordinate of V is -5. Thus, the coordinates of V are (7,-5).

Answer: E.

Signs of x and y in respective quadrants.
for Q1-(+,+)
for Q2-(-,+)
for Q3-(-,-)

This appears to be a retired question out of the official guide. Questions of this type, and by type I assume you mean easiness, indeed appear on the exam. You, however, may never encounter one this easy, depending on where the exam starts you during the quant section. Remember that the examine tests the aptitude of a wide range of quantitative abilities, and as such, must include questions generally considered to be easy (even if a bit too easy for some).

I hope that explanation was helpful!

The figure shows the standard x and y axes plotted where distance between 2 points is 1 units
The x co-ordinate of point V is 7 and y co-ordinate of point V is -5
so point V can be represented as (7,-5)
correct answer - E

(D) (7,5)
(E) (7,-5)


Looking at the diagram we can count 7 places to the right, so the x-coordinate of V is 7, and we can count 5 places down, making the y-coordinate of V equal to -5. So V is at (7, -5).

Answer: E
