Solution:

Lets say A and B are two points on circle with coordinates (-sqrt3, 1) and (s,t) respectively. Their distance from the center of the circle, origin in this case will be the same, as it is the radius of the circle.

applying the formula to calculat the distance we will have radius of the circle to be 2. so we have s^2 + t^2 = 4... equation 1.

Also we know that these two lines make right angle at origin. By applying pythagoras them, we have (s+sqrt3)^2 + ( t-1)^2) = 8

On solving and using equation 1, we will get t = sqrt3 * S

Now again putting this value in equation 1, we get s = 1
