###### 3. A tangent PQ at a point P of a circle of radius 5 cm meets a line through the centre O at a point Q so that OQ = 12 cm. Length PQ is:

(A) 12 cm

(B) 13 cm

(C) 8.5 cm

(D) cm

Ans. (D) PQ is the tangent and OP is the radius through the point of contact.  OPQ = [The tangent at any point of a circle is to the radius through the point of contact] In right triangle OPQ, OQ2 = OP2 + PQ2 [By Pythagoras theorem]      = 144 – 25 = 119 PQ = cm
