We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

if intersect refers to crossing a side of trinagle, it has to be 2,4,6 try draint a circle that crosses only one side, it will alweays intersct twice
or it will intersect two sides
if intersect refers to just touching the line then answer would be 1,2,3,4,5,6

I dont understand how the circle can intersect the triangle just once. Neither do I understand three intersections.
In my opinion it should be 2,4,6 (even numbers).
However, I don't think I can argue with the OA.
Can somebody explain better

thanks atrshep. I do however take issue with the wording of the question. In my opinion, touching(tangent) is not the same as intersection.
If I had seen this on the real GMAT, I would have chosen the answer 2,4,6.
Maybe, my understanding of circles is rudimentary but I will still argue that intersection is not the same as touching(tangent)
In any case, thanks for the explanation.
cheers
