Let us say that the cow moves between the points O and A which are 1m apart.

For convenience, Let us fix O at (0,0) and A at (1,0).
Let us assume that B is at some point (x,y) where the cow is grazing. Let P be the perpendicular dropped from B on OA.

So OP = x and PA = 1-x

OB2= OP2+ BP2= x2+ y2
OB =$$sqrt{x^{2} + y^{2}}\\$ BA2= AP2+ BP2 BA2=$1-x)2+ y2
BA = $$sqrt{$1-x$^{2} + y^{2}}$ Also, $\frac{OB}{BA}\\$ = $\frac{3}{2}\\$ $\frac{\sqrt{x^{2} + y^{2}}}{\sqrt{$1-x$^{2} + y^{2}}}$ = $\frac{3}{2}\\$ $\frac{x^{2} + y^{2}}{$1-x$^{2} + y^{2}}$ = $\frac{9}{4}\\$ 4$x2+ y2) = 9((1−x)2+ y2) = 9 (1 + x2– 2x + y2)

4 x2+ 4 y2= 9 + 9 x2– 18x + 9y2
5x2 + 5y2 – 18x +9 = 0, This is an equation of locus of a Circle.

Hence, the cow moves in a Circular path.

The question is"Two points on a ground are 1 m apart. If a cow moves in the field in such a way that it's distance from the two points is always in ratio 3: 2 then"

##### Hence, the answer is the cow moves in a circle

Choice B is the correct answer
