I have created a Closed path(circle) using the Eclipse tool and i used scisscors tool to cut through it then i draw a straight line using the pen tool, So basically i have 3 paths.

1 - the first part of the eclipse path

2 - the second part of the eclipse path

3 - a straight line made using the pen tool

Q1- Now as the eclipse path(the circle) was firstly as a closed path now as i cut throught it and made it two separate paths, are they now converted to Open paths?

Q2 - I can still join the separated parts of the eclipse using Ctlr+j but i cannot join the line(made with pen tool) with any part of the eclipse(circle paths), Why?  

 

UPDATE : after experimenting almost a day(yeah a full day) i figured that when you create a line with pen tool you have to select any anchor point of that line and click on the "cut path at selected anchor point" (a curved line having scissor under it) then you will be able to join the path(created with pen tool) with any other path (created with eclipse tool but have end points ).

Yes,

if you cut the ellipse at 1 point you have 1 open path.

if you cut the ellipse at 2 points you have 2 open paths.

If you select (with the Direct Selection Tool) a single point from the half ellipse and a single point from the line, you can join them.

When i select two points( 1 Anchor point from each separated circle paths) they do join, but when i do the same b/w the line and any parts of circle it gives me an error "To join, you must select two end points of the same or two different paths", which i have selected.

Basically, joining the Separated Circle paths works, but the straight line(made with pen tool) does not join up with any paths of circle.
