D
A rectangle for a certain fixed diagonal has the minimum perimeter for a square.
Now consider a square ina circle with radius R.
Perimeter is 4R(2)^(1/2) = 4(1.414)R = 5.6R.
This implies there can be no rectangle with diagonal 2R ,whose perimeter is less than 5.65R.
We look at the choices given, clearly 6R is the only alternative.
