Given diametrically opposite point $ (1,2),(-1,-2)$
Hence centre of the circle will be mid-point of the diametrical oposite point.
Mid point of $(1,2)$ and $ (-1,2)$, $(h,k)$ is given by
$\therefore$ The centre of the circle is $=(0,0)$ and
diameter is $\sqrt {1+1)^2+(2+2)^2}=\sqrt {20}$
$\Rightarrow\:(radius)^2=r^2=(\large\frac{\sqrt {20}}{2})^2$$=5$
$\therefore\:$ Equation of the circle is
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
