The maximum possible distance would be diameter=2*2, so the answer should be D.

Max possible distance between 2 points in a circle = Diameter of the Circle

Hence, answer will be (D) 4

Since the radius is 2, the maximum possible distance between two points on the circle is equal to the length of the diameter of the circle, which is 4.
