Question

P is outside circle with center O.

Here are the steps of construction arranged randomly to construct a pair of tangents from?

(a) Taking midpoint of OP as center, we draw a circle of radius OP2

(b) Join OP

(c) Join P to the points at which the drawn circle touches the circle with center O

(d) Bisects OP and get the midpoint.Which is 3rd step in the correct order of the steps of construction?
