If ABCD is a rectangle, lets calculate AC

AC =$$\sqrt{{x^2 + 4* x^2}}$$
AC = $$\sqrt{5}$$x

AC will be the diameter, radius will be $$\sqrt{5}$$x / 2

C = 2 $$\pi r$$
= 2 * $$\pi$$$$\sqrt{5}$$x / 2
= $$\sqrt{5} x\pi$$

From the above fig, the diagonal of the rectangle serves as the diameter of the circle as the diagonal passes through the center of both the circle and the rectangle.

Since the diameter is of $$\sqrt{5}x$$, radius of the circle $$\frac{\sqrt{5}x}{2}$$

The circumference of a circle is $$2\pi r$$ = $$2*\pi*\frac{\sqrt{5}x}{2}$$

$$\sqrt{5}x \pi$$

OPTION: B

diaganol of the rectangle = diameter of circle
d of rectangle = \sqrt{5}x

radius = \sqrt{5}x/2
2 * pi * \sqrt{5}x/2

=>$$\sqrt{5} x\pi$$
IMO B
