Simple one..

Longest chord in a circle is diameter - d = 2r ( in terms of radius)

2r = 10 = > r = 5.

IMO option B.

Well worded question. Longest chord of a circle is the diameter (10 in this case). So radius of the circle is 5 (Option B)

Longest chord of a circle is the diameter of the circle
diameter = 2 * radius
If diameter of the circle is given as 10 = 2 * 5
so radius of the circle = 5
correct answer - B

Longest chord is diameter.
Radius is half of diameter.
Radius = 10/2 = 5
