## Question

### Solution

Correct option is

(3, –4)

Equation of the given line is

x – 3y – 2 = 0                        …(1)

equation of the circle

x2 + y2 – 4x + 2y – 5 = 0       …(2)

equation of the tangent at (x1y1) to the circle (2) is

Lines (1) & (2) are || so

and             y1 + 1 = –3

y1 = –4

So the point of contact (3, – 4).
