Hi Bunuel,

I have a small doubt here.

Is point \(A\) closer to point \((1, 2)\) than to point \((2, 1)\)?

Actually per the question which is YES-NO question we will have answer as

YES-A is closer to (1,2) than to (1,2)

NO-A is not closer to (1,2) than to (1,2)=> A is closer to (2,1) than to (1,2)

In solving the question we get to know that A is at same distant from both points but per question it asks A is closer to which point and we got another scenario i.e, A is at same distance.

Pls Explain I did not get the solution is answering the question(Is point \(A\) closer to point \((1, 2)\) than to point \((2, 1)\)?).
