**The locus of a point which moves so that it is equidistance from two intersecting straight lines is the…**

- A.
**Perpendicular bisector of the two lines** - B.
**Bisector of the two lines** - C.
**Line parallel to the two lines** - D.
**Angle bisector of the two lines**

**QUICK ANSWER…**

**D**

**SOLUTION****… **** **

**If the two lines intersect, then the locus of a point with equal distance from the both lines will be an angle bisector passing through the point of intersection.**

**Now for the right answer to the above question:**

**Option A is incorrect.****Option B is incorrect.****C is incorrect.****D is the correct answer.**

**KEY-POINTS…**

**You may please note the****se/this****:**

**Assuming the lines do not intersect, that is if they are parallel, the locus of a point which is always of equal distance from both lines will be a line parallel and, in the middle(bisector) of both lines.****But in this case, it intersects, the locus will pass through the point of intersection and bisect (or equally divide) the angle of intersection.**
