That means that it is not a line segment.

A line segment cannot have more than one midpoint or else you will be creating multiple line segments that are connected to each other. A line segment can only have one midpoint.

A line segment cannot have more than one midpoints because the midpoint is the halfway point between (or the middle of) the line segment, and the midpoint is exactly halfway between the beginning and exactly halfway between the end of the line segment, not a third of the way, etc.

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.

Set a compass to draw a circle with a radius that's more than half the length of the line segment but less than the whole length.Put the compass point at one end of the segment and draw an arc above the middle of the segment and another below the middle of the segment.Put the compass point at the other end of the segment and again draw arcs above and below the middle of the segment, intersecting the first two arcs.Draw a line connecting the point where the two arcs intersect above the segment and the point where they intersect below the segment.That's your perpendicular bisector.

Adjust a compass so the distance between the point and the pencil is more than half of the length of the segment. With the point at one end of the segment draw an arc that intersects the segment. Without adjusting the compass, with the point at the other end of the segment draw an arc that intersects the first arc at two places. The line that includes those two intersecting points is the perpendicular bisector.

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

No, because if there is more than one midpoint then it will be like multiple line segments connected together. You can't have two midpoints or more, but you can have one to divide the line segment in half.

No. the arrow end comprises more than one straight line segments.
