Dear student
 
| x| + |y | = 1
 
hence this is the set of straight lines.
option D is correct
 
Thanks and Regards

If we choose our coordinate-axes as the given perpendicular lines, then the locus is the (diamond-shaped) square with vertices at (1,0), (0,1), (-1,0) and (0,-1). The locus has the equation |x| + |y| = 1, as the distances of the point (x,y) from the x- and the y-axis are |y| and |x|, respectively.
