Figure 4.1 shows the orientation of two vectors u and v in the XY plane.If u = aî + bĵ andV = pî +qĵWhich of the following is correct?A. a and p are positive while b and q are negative.B. a, p and b are positive while q is negative.C. a, q and b are positive while p is negative.D. a, b, p and q are all positive.

When we resolve the U vector, a and b will lie on a positive x-axis and y-axis respectively, suggesting that they are positive in nature (shown in red colour in above figure)

While resolving the orange vector p lies on the positive x- axis while q lies on the negative y- axis. Therefore, a, b, p, are positive while q is negative
