Different locations of the circle with 1 meter away from sides of the rectangle would create another rectangle with dimensions of 8*6. therefore,
the area of the new rectangle will be 48 and the area of the garden will be 80
48/80=0.60 or 60%

OA: D

Total area \(= 10*8\)

Favourable area\(= (10-2)*(8-2) = 8*6 = 48\)

Required Probability \(= \frac{48}{80}*100 = 60\)%
