Bunuel: Doesn't a square have the least perimeter among all quadrilaterals? Why does this question choose a circle in order to minimize the perimeter?

I think this is a poor-quality question and I agree with explanation.

I read this question 5 times before I realized it wanted a circle with an area of 154.

SOOOO tricky.

$$\pi = 3.1415...$$ and 22/7 = 3.142..., and since we need only approximate value we can use 22/7 instead of $$\pi$$ to simplify calculations.

One would need to remember that 22/7 is the approximate value of 3.14.. That's where I went wrong.
