Solution

## The correct option is B (9,13)The centre of the circle lies at the mid point of the diameter. Let the other end of the diameter be (x,y)Midpoint of two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is calculated by the formula (x1+x22,y1+y22)Using this formula, mid point of (x,y)and(5,−7)=(x+52,y−72)So,(x+52,y−72)=(7,3)=>x+5=7×2 and y−7=3×2=>x=9;y=13Thus, the other end of the diameter is (9,13).
