A line extends forever into space and a line segment is a segment or part of a line, so a line is longer than a line segment.

no

No, Aline never ends. EVER

Not if the whole segment is inside the circle.

a line is loger.line segment is a finite part of a line while the line is infinite

A line is longer.!?!

So that the arcs constructed are at midpoint of the line segment to be bisected.

Let's think of a line segment as a finite set of points. Along those lines, (pun intended) think of a ray and a line as infinite sets of points. Then we think of longer in terms of the size of the set. So for example, a 2 inch line segment would be longer than a 1 inch line segment because we can have more points in the set which is made of the two inch segment. The ray and the line are the same size since they both can be viewed as sets containing an infinite number of points. The line segment being a finite set is smaller than the other two.

A line segment has one more point than a ray

2inch

A line is continuous with no ending whereas a line segment is defined as having end points.
