If the given axes are Y and X axis and the numbers represent the spatial points, then what will be the position of one of the pivots?

(a) Below  X axis

(b) Above X axis

(c) Left of Y axis

(d) Between Y axis and 1

This question was addressed to me in exam.

The origin of the question is Synthesis of Four Bar Mechanism for Body Guidance topic in section Computer Aided Analysis and Synthesis of Mechanisms of Machine Dynamics

Right option is (a) Below  X axis

The explanation: If the points are joined and then a perpendicular bisector of the line formed by the joined points is made to intersect, then the intersection point gives the position of the pivot. In the above figure, it lies below the X axis and in the IVth quadrant.
