    connect QF , TB, TA
    Let QF meet circle Q at H
    Since circle O tangent to circle Q at T so O, Q,T are collinear
    Triangles OBT and QFT are isosceles with ∠ (BOT)= ∠ (FQT)
    So ∠ (OTB)= ∠ (QTF) => B, F, T are collinear
    In the same way we also have A,H,T are collinear
    Triangle BEF and BTA are similar ( case AA)
    So AT=EF. (AB/BF)….(1)
    Triangle BEF similar to HKA ( case AA)
    So AH=BF .(KH/BE)=BF.(EF/BE)…(2)
    Multiply (1) by (2) => AT. AH= AG^2= EF.(AB/BF). (BF/BE).EF
    AG^2= (AB/BE). EF^2= 4 EF^2
    So AG= 2 EF
