Solution

In ΔOPQ:

OP = OQ (Radii of same circle)

⇒ ∠OQP = ∠OPQ (Equal sides have equal angles opposite to them)

∠POQ + ∠OPQ + ∠OQP = 180° (Angle sum property of triangles)

⇒ 70° + 2∠OPQ = 180°

⇒ 2∠OPQ = 180° − 70° = 110°

⇒ ∠OPQ = 55°

It is known that the tangent is perpendicular to the radius through the point of contact.

∴ ∠OPT = 90°

⇒ ∠OPQ + ∠TPQ = 90°

⇒ 55° + ∠TPQ = 90°

⇒ ∠TPQ = 90° − 55° = 35°

The correct answer is D.
