Not drawn to scale. Also, ps_dahiya you do not need any of the other information to answer this question. :-D

D 1

A point to the left of P at the same distance as PT will be the only point
that will be twice the distance from T as from P

I Agree C

Could be between T and P (two thirds the distance to P from T)
Or to the right of P, double the distance of P&T from P

Exactly.... the question is asking how many points z exists
such that

|z-T| = 2|z-P|

The answer is (C). Have a look at the attachment. In both cases, x is twice as far from T as it is from P.

C) 2

Let point be X.

One point between P & T such that TX = 2PX

Another point beyond P on the left such that

TX = 2PX or PT= PX
