Question

# The line which intersects the circle at one point is called_____________

- Tangent
- Chord
- Secant
- None of the above

Hint:

### Circle is a two- dimensional figure which has no edge and corners and is made up of points which are placed at equidistant from the centre of the circle. Tangent is a line which meets with the circle at only one point. Here, we have to fill the blank using the concept of tangent.

## The correct answer is: Tangent

### In the question there is a blank which we have to fill using the given options.

In option a, there is tangent which intersect circle at one point.

In option b, there is chord which intersect the circle at more than one points.

In option c, there is secant which intersects the circle at more than one points.

So, the answer will be tangent.

Therefore, the correct option is a, i.e., Tangent.
