# What is a line segment that passes through the center of the circle?

A line segment is the part of the line having two endpoints.

## Answer: Diameter is a line segment that passes through the center of a circle.

Let's understand the concept through the diagram.

**Explanation:**

The line joining any two points lie on the circumference of a circle is called a chord.

As shown in the figure, AB is the longest chord and the longest chord of a circle always passes from the center of a circle.

### Hence, the diameter of a circle is the line segment that passes through the center of a circle.
