A?



correct!

A.
if radius is 10, it represents the hypotenuse of a traingle whose base is the x-coordinate and height is the y coordinate

and we know for a right angled triangle,

x^2 + y^2 = 10^2 =100..so 1 is sufficient

B..

x+y =0

we can conclude anything from this statement..insufficient

So Answer A

Thanks

unclear question. should have mentioned that circle encompasses the entire cordinate.

No Mirhaque, question is correctly worded and going by accounts of recent test takers is of the type which is being increasingly seen.

Questions which use the initial concepts of the branch of mathemetics known as coordinate geometry are coming in - circles/parabolas/other curves. These can be solved by basic geometry just as Praet has done. I will try to make some questions of this type and release for practice.
