The radius to this circle is 4, as the circle passes through line x=4 and x=-4.
The origin of this circle must be (6,0) because the circle with radius 4 will definitely pass through (2,0)
On the other side of the x-axis, the circle passes through (10,0)
Hence the value of x is 10(Option D)

Since the Diameter of the circle is 8

Distance between (2,0) & (x,0) should be 8 (Line cuts the circle into two equal parts)
(x-2) = 8

x=10
Hence D

From the figure, if we move along the y - axis, we find that the radius of the circle is 4

Now moving along the x - axis with radius = 4,
The centre is (2+4,0) = (6,0)
and the coordinate of the point where x - axis cuts circle on other side is (10,0)

So x = 10

Answer D

Looking at the y-axis, we see that the diameter of the circle is 4 - (-4) = 8.

Looking at the x-axis, we see that the left edge of the circle’s diameter is at x = 2. The line must extend to the right 8 more units to yield a diameter of 8, and so the value of x will be 10 at the rightmost edge of the circle.

Answer: D

imo D
radius of the circle=4 dia=8
so 2+8=10
the coordinate will be 10

Radius is 4. Diameter is 4*2=8.
Thus x coordinate would be 2+8=10.

Option D.
