Expert Answer:



1. Draw a circle with centre O and any radius.

2. Draw a diameter CD.

3. Taking C as a centre and radius more than half of length CD, draw two arcs in upper and lower portion of CD.

4. Taking D as a centre and same radius, draw two arcs which cut the previous arcs at E and F.

5. It is observed that the perpendicular bisector EF passes through centre O.
