Then the radius bisects the chord.

You cannot. If you rotate the circle around its centre, the lengths of the radius and chord will remain the same but the coordinates of the chord will change.

A chord is when two points in a circle are connected by segment. A diameter is a chord, but not a radius. The radius is not a complete segment in the circle

No, but the diameter of a circle is its largest chord

False

Chords come in various lengths, which may be longer, shorter, or the same length as the radius.

nothing sorry but its im possible

If radius of a circle intersects a chord then it bisects the chord only if radius is perpendicular to the chord.

Then the radius bisects the chord.

a radius can be a chord beca- wait why would i know!?!?!?

No but the diameter is a chord.

The radius of the circle that is perpendicular to a chord intersects the chord at its midpoint, so it is said to bisect the chord.

The relationship between the chord and the radius of the circle is Length of the chord = 2r sin(c/2) where r = radius of the circle and c = angle subtended at the center by the chord

Bisects

Perpendicular.

If you are given a chord length of a circle, unless you are given more information about the chord, you can not determine what the radius of the circle will be. This is because the chord length in a circle can vary from a length of (essentially) 0, up to a length of double the radius (the diameter). The best you can say about the radius if given the chord length, is that the length of the radius is at least as long has half half the chord length.
