E is correct if the circle and triangle can be tangent to each other. Not sure if tangent = intersect :? :puke

I totally agree. Strictly speaking, that's a difference. Then
the answer would be 2, 4, 6 --> B.

I will go for B as I think a tangent never intersects a circle only a chord does...

The Tangent Intersects the circle at 1 point!

"In plane geometry, a straight line is tangent to a curve, at some point, if both line and curve pass through the point with the same direction; "

Thats the definition of Tangent!

If I understand the question correctly, it should be E, six points. If you look at the attached figure, you can see that it can (at most) intersect at six points.
