Solution



Given:
    • AB= 6 units
    • CD= 8 units
    • AC= 10 units

To find:
    • The option which can be the correct diameter of quadrilateral ABCD.

Approach and Working:

Perimeter of ABCD= AB+BC+CD+DA= 8+6+AD+BC= 14+AD+BC
    • Hence, we will get the minimum value of perimeter when AD and BC are minimum
    • And, we will get the maximum value of perimeter when AD and BC are maximum.

In ∆ ADC,
    • 10-8 < AD < 10+8
    • 2 < AD < 18

In ∆ ABC,
    • 10-6 < BC < 10+6
    • 4 < BC < 16

Hence, 6 < AD+BC < 34

Thus, 20<Perimeter of ABCD< 48

The only option which lies between 20 and 48 is 35.

Hence, the correct answer is option B.

Answer: B

In triangle ADC ,3<AD<17
In triangle ABC ,5<BC<15

Therefore Max perimeter 8+6+17+15=46
Min perimeter 6+8+3+5=22
22<P<46
So B

The Answer has to be B.

From the Property of Traingle (i.e. Sum of two sides is always greater than third side).

In Triangle ADC, \(2 < AD < 18\)

In Triangle ABC, \(4 < BC < 16.\)

Add the Max value of AD & BC + 14. Only option B satisfies.

Given , AB = 6, CD = 8, AC = 10
Question : Perimeter = AB + BC + CD + AD = ?, i.e. BC + AC + 14 = ?
Required, value of AD and BC to find out perimeter of the quadrilateral.

For Triangle ADC :
AD < AC + DC, Hence, AD < 10+8 = 18 ---- (1)
And, AD+DC > AC, Hence, AD > 2 -----------(2)
(Checking AD + AC > DC not required as already AC> DC)

For Triangle ABC :
BC < AB+AC, Hence, BC < 6+10 = 16 -------(3)
And, AB + BC > AC, hence, BC > 4 -----------(4)
(Checking BC + AC > AB not required as already AC > AB)

From Eq. (1) & (3) we get P <48 and from Eq. (3) & (4) we get P >24.
Only (B) satisfies this. Hence, answer is (B) 35 units.

Hey kunalcvrce,

Your answer is correct.
But, can you please tell me, how you arrived at:
"In triangle ADC ,3<AD<17
In triangle ABC ,5<BC<15"


It should be 2<AD<18 and 4<BC<16

Hi EgmatQuantExpert

I missed the equal sign considering sides are integer. Thanks for correcting.

It’s a proper GMAT type question.
I will say it’s a simple and tricky question. If triangle property didn’t strike on time then this question will become most difficult to solve .
