    It’s B. EF

    The two points being intersected by the line is not on the circle however, the line still intersects two points and it passes through the circle. That clearly shows a secant line.

    AC is the diameter. (It’s the line that divides the circle in half)
    GH is a chord. (It is just a part of a secant. It connects two points on the circle.)
    DE is a line segment. (It’s a part of tangent line since it lies outside the circle)

    Let us identify each points.
    AC is the diameter.
    GH is a chord.
    DE is a line segment.

    So the secant here is B. EF

    Secant is defined as:
    The two points being intersected by the line is not on the circle however, the line still intersects two points and it passes through the circle.
