Re: properties of circle doubts

We have to prove that AD is diameter of a circle.
because those are inscribed angles on CD.
The inscribed angle on AD is .
By Thales theorem we can conclude that AD is diameter of a given circle. Diameters of a circle intersect only in center of circle, since CF is a diameter, point X is center of a circle.

Re: properties of circle doubts

Angle ABC = 115 and quadrilateral ABCD is cyclic so angle ADC = 65. Hence angle ACD is 90, AD is a diameter and X is the center of the circle.
