How can we describe the location of an object?

Answer:
To describe the position of an object we need to specify a reference point called the origin.
For example, suppose that a library in a city is 2 km north of the railway station. We have specified the position of the library with respect to the railway station i.e., in this case, the railway station acts as the reference point.
