Maximum points of intersection between n different circles = n*(n - 1) = 10*9 = 90

Hi,
if someone is not aware of the formula, you can easily do the Q through systematic approach..

VISUALIZATION can help us in these type of Qs,
first circle - no intersection
second circle - 2-points
third circle- two existing circles s0 2*2 - 4..
and so on till 10th - 9 existing circle and 2-points on each = 2*9=18..


\(TOTAL = 0+2+4+...16+18 = 2(1+2+3+...8+9) = 2*9*\frac{10}{2} = 90\)
A

2+2*2+…+2*9=2(1+2+…+9)=2(9)(10)/2=90
Hence, the correct answer is A.

- Forget conventional ways of solving math questions. In DS, Variable approach is the easiest and quickest way to find the answer without actually solving the problem. Remember equal number of variables and independent equations ensures a solution.
