# With PQ of length 6.1 cm as diameter, draw a circle.

**Solution:**

To draw a circle with a given diameter, we need to find the axis of symmetry of the given line segment first.

Step 1: Draw a line segment AB of length 6.1 cm.

Step 2: Taking A and B as centers mark two arcs that intersect each other at points X and Y.

Step 3: Join XY that meets at point O.

Step 4: Taking O as the center of the circle and AO as the radius, draw a full circle.

Hence, we have drawn the circle with a diameter equal to 6.1cm.
