We know that, each of the three arcs corresponds to 120 degree central angle. (Since the measure of central angle is twice the measure of angle at circumference).
hence each arc bounded by adjacent corners of the triangle corresponds to one-third of the circumference of circle.

Given, \(4\pi\)<\(\frac{2\pi*r}{3}\)<\(6\pi\)
Or, 4*3<2r<6*3
Or, 12<d<18

Among the options, 15 is in the range of diameter.

Ans. (D)
