# Fill in the blanks:

**(i)** A tangent to a circle intersects it in ………… point(s).

**(ii)** A line intersecting a circle in two points is called a ………….

**(iii)** A circle can have parallel tangents at the most ………….

**(iv)** The common point of a tangent to a circle and the circle is called ………...

To do:

We have to fill in the blanks.

Solution:

(i) A tangent line to a circle is a line that touches the circle at exactly one point(the point of contact), never entering the circle's interior.

There is only one line parallel to a tangent and touching the circle at only one point.

Therefore, A tangent to a circle intersects it in one point.

(ii) In geometry, a secant of a curve is a line that intersects the curve at a minimum of two distinct points.

Therefore, A line intersecting a circle in two points is called a secant.

(iii) A tangent line to a circle is a line that touches the circle at exactly one point(the point of contact), never entering the circle's interior.

There is only one line parallel to a tangent and touching the circle at only one point.

Therefore,

A circle can have parallel tangents at the most two.

(iv) A tangent line to a circle is a line that touches the circle at exactly one point(the point of contact), never entering the circle's interior.

Therefore,

The common point of a tangent to a circle and the circle is called point of contact.
