Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 4 : (-7/2, -2)

Concept:

Midpoint of line segment joining (x1, y1) and (x1, x2) is = [(x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2]

Calculation:

Given: The two points of a line are (-2, -1) and (-5, -3)

The midpoint of the line segment joining (-2, -1) and (-5, -3)

⇒ [(-2 – 5)/2, (-1 – 3)/2] = (-7/2, -2)
