Expert Answer:

(i) (-8, 1)

Here, X-coordinate is negative and Y-coordinate is positive,

Therefore (-8, 1) lies in quadrant II.

(ii) (-3, -1)

Here, X-coordinate is negative and Y-coordinate is also negative,

Therefore (-3, -1) lies in quadrant III.

(iii) (1, 2)

Here, both X-coordinate and Y-coordinate are positive,

Therefore (1, 2) lies in quadrant I.
