(b) The centre of a circle is always in its interior.

AcademicMathematicsNCERTClass 6

To do:

We have to find whether the given statements are true or false.


(a) A diameter of a circle is any straight line segment that passes through the centre of the circle and whose endpoints lie on the circle.

Therefore, two diameters of a circle will necessarily intersect at the centre.

The given statement is true.

(b) A circle is a collection of all points which are at a constant distance (radius) from a fixed point (centre).

This implies,

The centre must lie inside the circle.

The given statement is false.
