### Solved Example on Conic Section

**Ques: **If a right circular cone is cut with a plane perpendicular to the axis of the cone, then the resultant cross section would be:

##### Choices:

A. a hyperbola

B. a circle

C. an ellipse

D. a parabola

Correct Answer: B

### Solution:

Step 1: The plane is perpendicular to the axis of the cone or parallel to its base. So, the resultant cross section would be a circle.
