Man, you killed my 9 minutes and the answer is so simple.

You have just to be smart enough to see that the other diagonal of the rectangle from the vertex C is just a radius of the circle

From the values given in the question stem, Radius(CD) = CB + BD = 7+4 = 11

Concept used: In a rectangle, the length of the diagonals is equal.

Since one of the diagonals of the rectangle(CE) of the rectangle AEBC, marked in red is the
radius of the circle, the other diagonal, AB will also be equal to the radius of the circle.

Therefore, the length of the diagonal AB is 11(Option A)
