By property of similar triangles, we can visualize a smaller right angled triangle with in a larger right angled triangle with the depicted line as hypotenuse.

Hence, the opposite sides and adjacent sides of the smaller triangle will be half as much as the larger one.

With coordinates from Option "A", it is possible to visualize.

The only point on the line segment that would bisect it is its mid point

--> Midpoint of 2 points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) = ($$\frac{(x1 + x2)}{2}$$, $$\frac{(y1 + y2)}{2}$$)

--> Midpoint of (0, -1.5) and (2.5, 3) = ($$\frac{(0 + 2.5)}{2}$$, $$\frac{(-1.5 + 3)}{2}$$)
= (1.25, 0.75)

IMO Option A

Pls Hit Kudos if you like the solution

Solution

To Find:
• The point that bisects the line depicted in the figure

Approach & Working Out:
• The point that bisects the line depicted in the figure = the mid-point of the line = $$\frac{(0 + 2.5)}{2}, \frac{( -1.5 + 3)}{2} = (1.25, 0.75)$$

Hence, the correct answer is Option A

We use the midpoint formula: ((x_1 + x_2)/2 , (y_1 + y_2)/2). The point that bisects the line is (2.5 + 0)/2, (3 - 1.5)/2 = (1.25, 0.75).
