sounds like a sphere to me.

A solid sphere perhaps?

That's a circle. The "fixed point" is the center of the circle, and the constant distance is its radius.

It is the locus of all points such that their distance from a fixed line (the directrix) is the same as their distance from a fixed point which is not on that line (the focus).

A circle is the set of all points in a plane that are a given distance (or a fixed distance) from another point. Take a plane, and then pick any point on it. Then pick a distance from that point you picked and connect all the points that are that distance from your fixed point. That will describe the circumference of a circle. Another idea is to take a plane, pick any point, and then take a compass and put the point of that instrument on that point you picked. Then set a distance on the compass and draw a circle. That circle will be that set of all points a fixed distance from the original point you picked. (A string will work as well as a compass if that string is not stretched to draw the circle.)

The center of a circle is an example of a point equidistant from all points on the circle's circumference, serving as the geometric midpoint of the shape. It is a key element for defining the circle's properties and relationships with other geometric figures.

The center of the circle. That's how the circle is defined. (The collection of all points on a plane equidistant from a fixed point. The fixed point is the center and the fixed distance is the radius.)

It is the locus of all points such that their distance from a fixed line (the directrix) is the same as their distance from a fixed point which is not on that line (the focus).

That's false

The question is ambiguous. Is the"single" point fixed or floating?
