From information about square is inscribed in a circle of radius s.
The diameter of the circle is 2s. The diagonal of the inscribed square is the same as the diameter of the circle that circumscribes it.
So, diagonal of square = 2s and side of square = 2s/(√2) = √2s. Hence, perimeter = 4√2s

The diameter of this circle is 2r. The side of the square will be the same as the diameter of the circle inscribed in it.
So, side of square = 2r.
Perimeter of the square = 8r.

Choice B.
