Hi vishumangal and everyone,

Find attached solution. As shown in my sketch, the minimum and maximum lengths of FA are 5 and 25, respectively. But honestly, I don't agree much with the idea of monogon or digon as a polygon in case of maximum length of FA.

Answer is (A): 5, 25
+1 kudo is appreciated.

With maximum length of 25, polygon is not formed. It is a straight line.

Therefore, question needs correction.

AbdulMalikVT Polygon is not formed with OA provided by you.
In case of max length of 25, a straight line is formed and not a polygon.

Question needs correction.

The maximum length of 25 cannot be achieved as the rest of the points have to be in a straight line. Please update the Question.
