Exercise 4.6 


Q1. From the figure, identify :


(a) the centre of circle

Solution: The centre of circle is O.  

(b) three radii

Solution: Three radii are OA, OB and OC. 

(c) a diameter

Solution: AC is diameter of circle. 

(d) a chord

Solution: ED is a chord. 
(e) two points in the interior

Solution: Two points in the interior are P and O. 

(f) a point in the exterior

Solution: Q is the point in the exterior of circle. 

(g) a sector

Solution: AOB forms sector.

(h) a segment

Solution: ED forms segment.

Q2. (a) Is every diameter of a circle also a chord?
(b) Is every chord of a circle also a diameter?

Solution:

(a) Yes, every diameter of a circle is also a chord.

(b) No, every chord of a circle is not a diameter.
