Roman numbers are used in naming the quadrants as it will be easy to distinguish between the various quadrants as all the other dimensions in that quadrant are in numeric form .So,to avoid any error or redundancy .There are 4 quadrants : quadrant I,quadrant II,quadrant III and quadrant IV.

Quadrant

Quadrant I : (+, +) Quadrant II : (-, +) Quadrant III : (-, -) Quadrant IV : (+, -)
