Join PO. Now, angle (PAO) and angle (PBO) are 90 degree, so if we draw a circle considering PO as the diameter, then it will pass through points A and B as the angle subtended by the diameter in a semi-circle is 90 degree always.
Hence, PAOB are concyclic, i.e. we can draw a circle passing through 4 points.
