Ans (b) 1 Let us denote the radius of the two circles as r1 and r2, and the distance between their centers as d.

Since the circles intersect at two distinct points, we know that d

we have d = r1 + r2 and r1 > r1 - r2.

Therefore, we get

r1 > r1 - r2 = d - r2 > r2

r1 > d/2 > r2

the circles intersect at two distinct points, we know that d > 2r,

Therefore,

r we know that the radius of the circles must be less than d/2, which is less than or equal to 2.
