see the attached figure. The circle intersects with triangle at 6 points.

By shifting the circle (keeping triangle fix), you can make it to intersect at either 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 different points.

Hence E

Already has been discussed here circle-and-trianlge-78840.html
To Sum up: in geometry: intersection - point which two lines share in common.
(might not be what we commonly call intersect)

Thanks, this is exactly what I wanted to clear whether they want us too include those points on which triangle is acting as a tangent to the circle..

Thanks.. !
