Geometry of Love

Geometry Level 4

A boy named Alex plans to give a rose with a beautiful ring to his sweetheart Rosie.

But Rosie likes a specific kind of rose with a ring such that -

If the rose is considered as a 2-D circle , the ring is a point RR with coordinates (3,5)(-3 , -5), the power of the point R R (ring) is '101' with respect to the circle(rose). [2- D Geometry]

Alex collects 5 roses with one ring each with coordinates (3,5)(-3 , -5) and opts to select the appropriate rose, which his sweetheart Rosie would like on Valentine's Day.

The collected roses had the following equations:

Rose R : x2+y22x4y+9=0x^2 + y^2 - 2x - 4y + 9 = 0

Rose O : x2+y24x6y+9=0x^2 + y^2 - 4x - 6y + 9 = 0

Rose S : x2+y26x8y+9=0x^2 + y^2 - 6x - 8y + 9 = 0

Rose I : x2+y28x10y+9=0x^2 + y^2 - 8x - 10y + 9 = 0

Rose E :x2+y210x12y+9=0 x^2 + y^2 - 10x - 12y + 9 = 0

You have to help Alex to select the right rose for his valentine. Which one will you suggest?

Bonus question: Alex and Rosie are the main romantic characters in a film released in 2014. What is the name of this film?
