    Hello, soni!

    There must be a typo . . . The problem makes no sense.


    X\text{ and }Y are midpoints of arcs AB\text{ and }CD of a circle
    and segment XY cuts chords AB\text{ and }CD at P\text{ and }Q, resp.

    Prove: . AP=AQ . ??
    Code:
                      C
              A   * * o
              o       |   *
            * |       |     *
           *  |       |      *
              |       |
          *   |P      |Q      *
        X o - + - - - + - - - o Y
          *   |       |       *
              |       |
           *  |       |      *
            * |       |     *
              o       |   *
              B   * * o
                      D

    Draw segment AQ.

    We can see that AP is never equal to AQ.
