1. Option D: 13 units is the distance between the two points

Explanation:

Given that the points are and We need to find the distance between the two points.

The distance between the two points can be determined using the distance formula, Let us substitute the points and in the above formula, we get, Simplifying the terms within the bracket, we have, Adding the terms within the bracket, we get, Squaring the terms, we have,  Simplifying, we have, Rounding off to the nearest tenth, we get, Hence, the distance between the two points is 13 units.

Therefore, Option D is the correct answer.
