(1) The circle passes through both the origin and (0,7).
(2) The diameter equals 10.


Hi,
Easy to make mistake, if done in a hurry, in these Q

Since no info in the Q stem, lets see the choices..
(1) The circle passes through both the origin and (0,7).
we may take this to be a diameter and thik it to be sufficient..
But it can be a chord or a diameter, so INSUFF


(2) The diameter equals 10.
clearly insuff

Combined..
we may take it to be sufficient as we know legth of a chord along with the coordinates and the dia too..
But we are not aware if the chord is below the dia or above the dia..
Accordingly the origin will change


E

Suppose (x,y) is the centre of the circle. So the radius r can be defined as distance between the centre and any point on the circle.

So, x^2 +y^2 = x^2 + (y-7)^2 --> equation 1 from the statement 1. From this, we get the value of y.

From statement 2, diameter = 2r and since r^2 = x^2 +y^2 from statement 1 and we know the value of y, we can find x.

So, isn't C the answer? Correct me if I am wrong.
