The figure below shows a partially completed construction of an obtuse isosceles triangle. Points P and L represent two vertices of the triangle.
Where should the point for the third vertex lie?
between O and L and on the arc
between O and L and beyond the arc
between O and M and beyond the arc
between O and M and on the arc
