prove that every every line segment has one and only one end point . use euclids geometry to prove

• geometry -

it's false. A line segment is by definition finite in extent. So, it has two end points.

Since a line segment is non-directional, it makes no sense to call one end point a starting point.

A ray, on the other hand, has one end point, and extends indefinitely from it in a given direction.
