# Repeat Question 6, if AB happens to be a diameter.

**Solution:**

We can find the perpendicular bisector of the longest chord in a circle that passes through the center using the steps below.

Step 1: Draw a circle with a radius of 3.4 cm and center C.

Step 2: Draw the longest chord of the circle that joins two points A and B on the circle and passes through the center. [Longest chord of a circle is the diameter]

Step 3: Taking A and B as center, draw arcs that intersect each other at points X and Y.

Step 4: Join XY.

Line segment XY passes through the center C which is also the perpendicular bisector of the diameter AB.
