Look at how you are generating the t vector. That would be a way to make your circle look a lot more like a circle.

Hi,
According to your comments I think you just want a particular point (x,y co-ordinates) on a circle. For that you should also pass the angle value too. You got the function almost right, I have modified it a little:
function [x,y] = getCircle(xm,ym,radius,t)
x = radius*cos(t)+xm;
y = radius*sin(t)+ym;
end
where t can lie between the interval [0,2*pi] in radians.
Hope this helps!

Personally I think it is more likely that OP was calling the function with a single output and should increase the number of angles.
It looks like homework to me, and I don't see how it makes sense to ask for a part of the arc in a homework question.
