    You found the point of intersection which is the centre.

    Do vector arrows and find a route for origin to B.

    Also, remember that circles have equal radii .

    How do you know that the point of intersection is the centre of the circle? And I did think about that! CA = CB but I don't know what C is

    A and B lie on l1. C lies one l2. As A and B are points on the circle's arc then part of l1 is the diameter so C has to be the intersection of both lines. You found out C in part (c).

    \vec{OB}=\vec{OA}+\vec{AB}

    What might \vec{AB} be equal to?

    I'm sorry, I still don't understand. I don't see how with the information given you can say that part of L1 is the diameter, it could pass through the circle so that it forms any chord, not necessarily the diameter?
    By the way, have you read the kingkiller chronicles too? I love those books (Kvothe)

    I made an assumption. I apologise. Still, the method is the same. You are right that it could be a chord but l1 and l2 are perpendicular. As l2 cuts through the centre then it has to bisect the chord or diameter line that l1 makes with the circle.

    Yes, I've read the Kingkiller Chronicles. This name isn't a coincidence .
    The perpendicular from the centre to the chord bisects the chord
