No. A ray has one endpoint and extends into infinity from that point.

A line is a one-dimensional set of points that extends to infinity in both directions (so it has no endpoint). A ray is a line that goes to infinity in only one direction and has one endpoint. A line segment is a line with two endpoints (so it does not go to infinity).

They are alike because a ray is part of a line, a segment is part of a line, and a line is basically a line. They are different because a segment has two end points; a ray has one, and a line is a group of points on a straight path that extends to infinity like a ray extends to infinity in one direction

a half-line with a designated end point which extends in only one direction without stopping

The set of points on a straight curve that extends to infinity in both directions is a line. A ray is the set of points that lie on a straight curve that is terminated at a point, and continues to infinity. It is also called a half-line. If the set is terminated at a point at both ends, then it is a line segment.

In geometry, a ray is a line segment that extends from one point to infinity, and angle is the measure between two intersecting lines, rays, or line segments.

A line is a one-dimensional set of points that extends to infinity in each of its two directions without any turns (if it had a turn it would be two-dimensional). The word line is also commonly used to refer to a line segment, which has two end points and therefore does not extend to infinity. A line with one end point that extends to infinity in one direction is called a ray.
