A circle with center in the second quadrant is tangent to both axes.

If the center of the circle is on the line $y = x + 4$, which of the following represents the equation of the circle?

A

$ (x+2)^2 + (y-2)^2 = 4 $

B

$ (x-2)^2 + (y-2)^2 = 4 $

C

$ (x-2)^2 + (y+2)^2 = 4 $

D

$ (x+4)^2 + (y-4)^2 = 16 $

E

$ (x+1)^2 + (y-3)^2 = 16 $
