#### Answer

$B$

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL: The point (x, y) has: x = directed distance of the point from the y-axis (positive when to the right of the y-axis, negative when to the left) y = directed distance of the point from the x-axis (positive when above the x-axis, negative when below) Thus, the given point is 1 unit to the left of the y-axis 3 units below the x-axis Therefore, the point that matches the given coordinates is point B.
