A pair of tangents can be constructed
Question:

A pair of tangents can be constructed from a point P to a circle of radius 3.5 cm situated at a distance of 3 cm from the centre.

Solution:

False

Since, the radius of the circle is 3.5 cm i.e., r = 3.5 cm and a point P situated at a distance of 3 cm from the centre i.e.,d= 3 cm

We see that,                                                                r > d

i.e., a point P lies inside the circle. So, no tangent can be drawn to a circle from a point lying inside it.
