This is a D.

I. Area greater than 57. Min perimeter case will be a square. Square root of 57 can be found.

II. Again minimum case will be a square with diagonal 17.

In either case we can find out the perimter.

St1: Worst case will be square of side 7.5. Square of 7.5 is 56.25: So the perimeter will be greater 30: SUFF

St2: Permieter of a rectangle is always greater than the sum of the diagnols.: SUFF
