Question

There is a circle with centre O. P is a point from where only one tangent can be drawn to this circle. What can we say about P?



Your Answer
A

P is outside the circle.

Your Answer
B

P is inside the circle.

Correct Answer
C

P is on the circle.

Your Answer
D

O and P are co-incident points.


Solution

The correct option is C

P is on the circle.


Since only one tangent can be drawn, this point P should be present on the circle.

Any point on the circle is at a distance equal to the radius of the circle. So OP is equal to the radius of the circle.
