what is the difference between a line, a line segment, and a ray?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A line is a connected set of points extending forever in both directions.Thus it has no start and end points.

A line segment is a section of a line running between two points.It has a fixed start and end point. It is a part of a line.

A ray is the part of a straight line that extends infinitely in one direction from a fixed point.Thus it has a fixed start point but no end.
