For the question above, why can we NOT assume the line OR to be flat on the x-axis (in which case the answer would be D)? The official answer is B.

The problem didn’t state that the line cannot be flat.

Thanks!

If u draw a perpendicular line to x axis u can see a right angle triangle and in right angle triangle hypotenuse has the largest side so (x,y) can’t be greater than 5.

Yes, I get the question if point was specified to be non-flat. However, the question didn’t say that it can’t be flat. Wouldnt (0,5) still mean R is “in the rectangular coordinate system”?
