Marquez is constructing a regular hexagon inscribed in a circle. He begins by drawing a line and labeling a point on the line as point A. He then uses his compass to construct a circle with point A as the center. He labels the points where the circle intersects the line as points B and C.

What step should be his next step?

Draw a line through point A that intersects the circle twice.

Without changing the compass opening, construct a circle with either point B or point C as the center.

Increase the compass opening, and with the compass point on point A, construct an arc that intersects the circle.

Increasing the compass opening, construct a circle with either point B or point C as the center.
