### QUESTION 1 of 10

Two straight lines are parallel if they never meet, even when they go on for ever in their straight lines.

Two straight lines are intersecting if they meet or cross over.

Two intersecting lines that cross at 90° or at right angles are perpendicular.

Look at these two lines.
