- There are 2 circles say A, B. A is smaller than B and they are not intersecting at any point. Where will be the intersection point of internal tangents for these circles?
- How many internal tangents are there for two circles?
- There are 2 circles say A, B. A has 20 units radius and B has 10 units radius and distance from centers of A and B is 40 units. Where will be the intersection point of external tangents?
- Axes are called conjugate axes when they are parallel to the tangents drawn at their extremes.
- In arcs of circles method, the foci are constructed by drawing arcs with centre as one of the ends of the axis and the radius equal to the half of the axis.
- The perspectives of concentric circles are not concentric

- For any point on any curve there exist two normals.
- There will be no change in length if the line is viewed parallel to plane on which the line is present and also if the line is rotated with respect to perpendicular planes.
