I want to create a figure similar to this one:

Picture of Circle.

The left "quarter" of the circle should be filled (as if the circle is intersected by a hyperplane and all points in the circle that are one the left side of the hyperplane are marked). However, I only managed to create such a figure in the case when the left half of the circle is filled. This was my attempt:




  \draw[fill] (0,0)-- (90:2ex) arc (90:270:2ex) -- cycle ;
  \draw[thick] (0,0) circle (2ex);


Any help is very appreciated. :)

    Welcome to TeX.SX! You could clip a rectangle that has just a quarter of the width of the circle: \begin{scope} \clip (0,0) circle (2ex); \draw[fill] (-2ex,-2ex) rectangle (-1ex,2ex); \end{scope} \draw[thick] (0,0) circle (2ex);. Jul 19, 2023 at 14:19

    \fill[teal] (210:1) arc(210:330:1) -- cycle;
