Hint – There can be two ways to think of this problem. First is the diagrammatic approach. In the graph paper labeled one, look for the points where x coordinate is 0 and the y-coordinates is also 0. The second one we will discuss in the later end.

Complete step-by-step answer:

As we know the equation of x-axis is (y = 0) and the equation of y-axis is (x = 0).
So the intersection point of x-axis and y-axis is called the origin as shown in figure.
So the coordinates of the origin is (x, y) = (0, 0) as shown in figure.
So this is the required answer.
Hence option (D) is correct.

Note – In this method directly look into an unlabeled graph and mark the point of intersection of the x axis and the axis, this point of intersection is the origin. Moreover the origin of a Euclidean space is a special point usually denoted by O. It is used as a fixed point of the reference for the geometry of the surrounding space.
