Its E,

root(2500 -1600) = root (900) = 30
sot total perimeter = 30+65+ 40+50+65= 250

Hence Option E

Let's start by adding an auxiliary line that divides the shape into 2 pieces that we can work with (rectangle and right triangle)...
Image

Let x = length of 3rd side of the right triangle...
Image
Since the highlighted triangle is a RIGHT TRIANGLE, we can apply the Pythagorean Theorem.
We get: x² + 40² = 50²
Evaluate to get: x² + 1600 = 2500
So, x² = 900, which means x = 30

Alternatively, we might recognize that the highlighted triangle is a version of the 3-4-5 right triangle, except the highlighted triangle is 10 TIMES bigger than the standard 3-4-5 right triangle, which means the missing side (x) has length 30.....
Image

Now that we have all of the information we need, the perimeter = 30 + 65 + 40 + 65 + 50 = 250
