Edge of cube = 5√2

Diagonal of any face of cube = Side√2 = 5√2*√2 = 10

PQ = QR = PR = Diagonal of faces of cube = 10 each

Perimeter of PQR = 10+10+10 = 30

Answer: Option c

We see that triangle PQR has three equal sides, each of which is a diagonal of a face of the cube. Since the cube has a side length of 5√2, the diagonal of a face is:

5√2 * √2 = 10, which is also a side of PQR, so the perimeter of PQR is 30.

Answer: C
