1. (x, 5) is in Quadrant I , So x must be +ve
2. (−6, y) is in Quadrant III , So y must be -ve

Thus, (x,y) = (+ve , -ve) ; So it will be in Quadrant IV, Answer must be (A) IV

Since (x, 5) is in quadrant I, x is positive.

Since (−6, y) is in quadrant III, y is negative.

Thus, (x, y) is in quadrant IV.
