Q. |
## The generating point is outside the generating circle for |

A. | cycloid |

B. | superior trochoid |

C. | inferior trochoid |

D. | epicycloid |

Answer» B. superior trochoid | |

Explanation: if the generating point is on the circumference of generating circle then the curve formed may be cycloids or hypocycloids. trochoid is a curve generated by a point fixed to a circle, within or outside its circumference, as the circle rolls along a straight line or a circle. but here given is outside so it is superior trochoid. |
