Dear student 
 
 first draw the diagram according to the question.
now, let angle ZWP= angle PWX= θ
also, angle ZYQ= angle XYQ= p
cyclic implies ZWX + XYZ = 180
2θ + 2p= 180
or θ + p= 90
now, join PY. and note than ZWP= PYZ= θ (angles in the same segment theorem)
so, PYQ= PYZ + ZYQ
= θ + p= 90
or PYQ= 90.
hence PQ is a diameter, since when P and Q are joined to O (centre of circle), angle POQ= 2*pyq= 180. hence, POQ is a straight line, thereby implying that it is the diameter.
