Is the answer 0?
ya i think the answer ought to be C ie 2. Since the circle and line are in the same plane, there are two possibilities when a circle and line intersect. One is that the line is a tangent, in which case there will only be one pt common with the two. The other one is that the line intersects the circle in two points. In this prob since it is given that the line L has a point P which lies inside the circle C( read here..pt is not ON the circle but IN it), so the line must not be a tangent and hence intersects it in 2 points- ptA and ptB as i've drawn in the figure
hope this explains it
