The greatest distance will be the distance of diagonally opposite points. So, we can have a right angled triangle such that Height is 8 and radius is 8.

So, using Pythagoras theorem, we have \(sqrt(8^2 + 8^2 ) = sqrt(128)\).

Hence, answer B.

Use Pythagorus theorem -

Greatest distance is the diameter of the ( Square / Rectangle) = \(\sqrt{(8^2) + (8^2)}\) =>\(\sqrt{128}\)

Answer will be (B)
