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, • 108 < AD < 10+8 • 2 < AD < 18 In ∆ ABC, • 106 < 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

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 Regards, Ashutosh eGMAT

Thanks for correcting.

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 .
