Answer E

1 Point: Circle just touching 1 side or vertex (leaves us with options 3, 4, 5)

Now we see that options 3, 4, 5 all have 1, 2, 3 in them so now let's test 5 points. If 5 points works then 5 is the only possible answer, if 5 points don't work we go back and test 4 points.

5 Points: Circle that touches the base from the inside of the triangle at one point, then intersects each of the legs twice (from going outside the triangle and coming back in)

and by testing 2 points we see our answer!

Best to just draw a triangle and a circle.
