Solution

The correct option is A (10,14)
C1:(x2)2+(y3)2=72,  c1:(2,3)C2:(x5)2+(y+1)2=22,  c2:(5,1)

c1c2=(25)2+(3+1)2=5c1c2=r1r2=72=5


Therefore C2 lies inside the C1 and touches only at one point.
Therefore, equation of tangent is,
C1C2=03x4y=29
From the given options
(10,14) lies on the common tangent.
