    I have tride with saying that if c and d are the centres of the circle and o is its midpoint of CD then by structure as well as by sense we can feel that M is midpoint of PAQ where OA = OM. thus midpoint lies at A when OM is perpendicular to PAQ. these are basic construction properties which i have noted in middle school. but cannot proceed furhter. any other way or modification to this?
