sides size is proportional to opposite angle size
if r>s then BC>AB
so C

answer is C

based on the property triangle property
plus one can also see that it r > s then side AB will be more steeper and BC will be more inclined that makes BC > AB

Recall that in a triangle, the longer side is opposite the larger angle (and vice versa) and the shorter side is opposite the smaller angle (and vice versa). Since r > s, side BC (which is opposite angle r) is longer than side AB (which is opposite angle s). That is, BC > AB, or AB < BC.

Answer: C
