we can get the answer using the option A alone
Hint : equation of the circle is X^2 + Y^2 = r^2
where (x,y) is any point on the circle and r = radius of the circle

since its a circle and we know the radius..then once we know the x coordinate or y coordinate of Q we can tell the distance PQ..

I would go with D

IMO A.

x^2+Y^2 = 50^2

now,

1 ) x=-30, y can be either 40 or -40 => in both cases PQ is equal

2 ) y = -40 , x can be 30 or -30 => the PQ will be different in each case.. insufficient
