Question

Solution

Correct option is

(aa)

Let r be the radius of the circle. Since it touches the coordinates axes and the line the coordinates of the centre of the circle can be (rr), (–r, –r) or (r, –r) (As r > 0 and the line meets the coordinates axes at and ).

If the centre is (rr) or (– r, – r), then So (aa) can be the coordinates of the centre of the circle, check that if the centre is (r, –r) we have SIMILAR QUESTIONS
