A) I only B) II only C) III only D) I and II only E) None of the above The maximum distance which Point A can lie from centre = 5 (Its the distance from centre of circle to Point A). (5,1) & (2,7) lies at the circle as their distance from Centre of Circle is 5. Distance from (0,7) to (2,3) is less than 5. Hence, (0,7) lies inside the circle.
Option A.

r <=5 since the point must be on or inside the circle. Option I gives R < 5. If R = 5 we do not know for certain if the point is inside the circle, hence option II is out. Option III is anyways greater than 5. A.

Origin, O  (2,3) A (1,7)  Does not lie outside the circle, implies it is either on the circle or inside the circle. Distance between (2,3) and (1,7) = 5 So, radius of the circle <= 5 Q) Must lie inside the circle, implies NEITHER outside the circle NOR on the circle. D < 5 ===> D!>=5 Point 1  Distance between (2,3) and (0,7) ===> Less than 5 Point 2  Distance between (2,3) and (5,1) ===> Equals to 5 Point 3  Distance between (2,3) and (2,7) ===> More than 5 Answer is Only I.

Solution If the point \(A (1,7\)) does not lie outside the circle, then it can lie either on the circle or inside the circle as shown in the diagram. Let us denote the distance between the point \(A (1,7)\) and centre of the circle \((2,3)\) by \(D\). D= \(\sqrt{(2(1))^2+(37)^2}\) D= 5 Now, when the distance of point A is 5, then we are uncertain whether it lies on the circle or inside the circle. However, if the distance of any point from centre is less than 5 then we can infer, that the point is certainly inside the circle. Let us find the distance of all the points given in options. 1 (0,7) Distance= \(\sqrt{(20)^2+(37)^2}\) Distance= \(\sqrt{20}\), which is less than \(5\). Hence (0,7) lies inside the circle.2 (5, 1) Distance= \(\sqrt{(25)^2+(3(1))^2}\) Distance= \(5\) 3 (2, 7) Distance= \(\sqrt{(2(2))^2+(37)^2}\) Distance= \(\sqrt{32}\), which is greater than \(5\). Answer: A
