Which best describes the dimensions of a line?A.) A line has zero dimensions because it represents a location on the coordinate plane.B.) A line has one dimension because it is made up of all points that extend infinitely in either direction.C.)A line has two dimensions because it is made up of three noncollinear points.D.)A line has multiple dimensions depending on how many labeled points it contains.

The correct answer is (B) A dimension. A point, not a line, has no dimension (A: A line of zero dimensions, since it represents a location in the coordinate plane), shapes, or a plane, not a line, has two dimensions (C:A line has two dimensions, as it is made up of three points not collinear), the space in itself can have 3, 4 or more dimensions, and again, not a line (D:A line that has multiple dimensions, depending on how many labelling of the points that it contains.).
