Consider the circles and $$ \begin{aligned} &C_{1}=x^{2}+y^{2}-2 x-4 y-4=0 \\ &C_{2}=x^{2}+y^{2}+2 x+4 y+4=0 \end{aligned} $$ and the line \(L=x+2 y+2=0\).

Chapter 1

If \((a, b)\) is a point on the chord \(A B\) of the circle, where the ends of the chord are \(A=(-2,3)\) and \(B \equiv(3,2)\) then : (a) \(a \in[-3,2], b \in[2,3]\) (b) \(a \in[2,3], b \in[-3,2]\) (c) \(a \in[-2,2], b \in[-3,3]\) (d) \(a \in[-3,3], b \in[-2,2]\)

Chapter 1

If the distance of any point \((x, y)\) from the origin is defined as $d(x, y)=\max \\{|x|,|y|\\}$ \(d(x, y)=\) a non-zero constant, then the locus is : (a) a circle (b) a straight line (c) a square (d) a triangle
