C

If perimeter is 23, the third side will be 12 which is against the below rule

The sum of any 2 sides in a triangle has to be greater than the third side.

Sum of 2 sides > than the third side, and the difference of 2 sides should be < third side

I. 16m, third side = 5, 11 > 5 & 4 < 5, satisfies
II. 21m, third side = 10, 11 > 10 & 4 < 10, satisfies
III. 23m, third side = 12, 11 > 12(Not possible) & 4 < 12, Doesn't satisfy

Answer C.

In such questions, find the extremes

(I) Minimum perimeter..
for this find the LEAST possible dimension of the third side..
THIRD side will be GREATER than the DIFFERENCE of the other two sides.. THIRD side > (7-4), so Perimeter >7+4+(7-4).....P>14

(I) Maximum perimeter..
for this find the GREATEST possible dimension of the third side..
THIRD side will be SMALLER than the SUM of the other two sides.. THIRD side < (7+4), so Perimeter <7+4+(7+4).....P<22

so \(14<perimeter<22\)

I and II are in the range but II is not..

C
