    Choices:
    A. Figure 2
    B. Figure 3
    C. Figure 1
    D. Figure 4
    Correct Answer: A

Solution:

    Step 1: Intersecting lines cross at a common point.
    Step 2: Figure 2 has two lines, which intersect each other at a single point.
    Step 3: So, Figure 2 represents a pair of intersecting lines.
