Question

Solution

Correct option is

1/2

Chord with mid-point (hk) is

hx + ky = h2 + k2                                     …(1)

chord of contact of (x­1y1) is

xx1 + yy1 = 2                                            …(2)

Comparing, we get

(x1y1) lies on 3x + 4y = 10 ⇒ 6h + 8k = 10(h2 + k2)

∴ locus of (hk) is

∴ OP = 1/2.
