Took 40 secs for this...

When we have perimeter to be calculated then we need to consider only the exterior sides .

If we check then we get 7 sides for the above figure..

Let's take side be a , then 7a = 210 => a = 30.

\(Equilateral triangle perimeter is 3a\) => 90.

IMO option D.

Ans : perimeter of 7 sides =210 => 1 side =30
since all are equilateral triangles => all sides equal => perimeter one triangle =30+30+30 =90

Perimeter is the continuous line forming the boundary of a closed geometric figure. Hence, we need to consider only 7 sides of the figure above.
The length of each side is \(\frac{210}{7} = 30\)

Hence perimeter of each triangle since equilateral is 3*30 = 90
Answer is D
