Alternative solution: 10*\(\sqrt{6}\) = \(\sqrt{600}\), which is approximately 24.5 as 600 lies between 24*24=576 and 25*25=625

So, \(\sqrt{25+24.5}\) + \(\sqrt{25-24.5}\) = \(\sqrt{49,5}\) + \(\sqrt{0.5}\) ≈ slightly more than 7+ around 0.7*≈ 8

* 0.7*0.7 =0.49 ≈ 0,5

So, we can eliminate A, D and E

B and C

2*\(\sqrt{15}\)≈ 2*4 ≈ 8 - contender

\(\sqrt{55}\) - loser.

First, 55 is closer to 49 than to 64, so \(\sqrt{55}\) is closer to 7.

Second, using guessing technique, we see that 55 has no pair with any other number in answer choices, whilst there is a pair of 60s - 60 and \(\sqrt{60}\).

Hope this helps!
