Explanation:-



Note that the drawing is in paper space which is shown by the triangular UCSICON. Double click the viewport. 


Recall from that you must double click inside a viewport to access objects through it. Do this and click and grip the green line to find out which layer it was drawn on. Note that the linetype displays "by layer". This is linetype was set up when the layer was created.

To find out which linetype was used go to layer properties manager to find the layer to read it's linetype "by layer" to see the name DOT.
