True or False
The length of tangent from an external point P on a circle with centre O is always less than OP.
This statement is True.
PT is a tangent drawn from external point P. Join OT.
∵ OT ⊥ PT
So, OPT is a right-angled triangle formed.
In right-angled triangle, hypotenuse is always greater than any two of the two sides of the triangle.
∴ OP > PT
or PT < OP
