No. A ray is infinite on one side and ends at a point at the other. A line segment ends in two points. A ray can contain a line segment, as the distance between any two given points on the ray is a line segment.

Such a line is called a perpendicular bisector.

None of them since a thread has a finite length and finite width. A point has neither length nor width whereas a line, line segment and ray do not have any width. A plane has infinite length and width. The nearest approximation is a line segment.

ray is a line segment that extends forever in one direction

A ray line is longer, since it has an end point and then extends forever in the other direction its length is infinite, whereas a segment has a definite length defined by two endpoints.

a ray continues on and on but a line segment stops

It is a segment in case you do not know what a segment is it is a line with two end points

yes it can because a Ray is a line segment with an arrow at the end.

No. A ray is infinite on one side and ends at a point at the other. A line segment ends in two points. A ray can contain a line segment, as the distance between any two given points on the ray is a line segment.

They are not. A line segment is of finite length whereas a ray is infinitely long.

A line segment has a finite length. A ray extends to infinity in one direction.

A line segment has one more point than a ray
