## Question

### Solution

Correct option is

Let P(hk) be the point of intersection of tangents at the ends of a normal chord of the hyperbola x2 – y2 = a2.

Then, the equation of the chord is

But, it is a normal chord. So, its equation must be of the form

.

Equation (i) and (ii) represent the same line.

Hence, the locus of P(hk) is a2(y2 – x2) = 4x2y2.
