    A chord is a lot like a secant, but where the secant is a line stretching to infinity in both directions, a chord is a line segment that only covers the part inside the circle. A chord that passes through the center of the circle is also a diameter of the circle.

    No, a chord is just any line segment joining two points of a curve, it doesn't have to go through the center. So the 3rd alternative is the right one.

    @lvilceus Chord is not necessarily a line or segment through the centre and not necessarily connected with secant |dw:1348085728111:dw|
