Lets assume NS=20 then each part will be equal to 4. and radius of circle is 1/4*20=5 then clearly circle will intersect NS between P & Q .

Answer will be C

We can let each segment be 1 unit and point O be designated as the number 0. Thus, N = -1 and S = 4. So NS = 5, and the radius = 1/4 x 5 = 5/4 = 1.25. We see that P = 1 and Q = 2; thus, the circle will intersect somewhere between P and Q since its radius is 1.25 units long.
