Rahim plans to draw a square JKLM with a point O on the side JK but is not successful. Why is Rahim unable to draw the square?
A: The length of OM is twice that of OL.
B: The length of OM is 4 cm.
|A||If the question can be answered using A alone but not using B alone.|
|B||If the question can be answered using B alone but not using A alone.|
|C||If the question can be answered using A and B together, but not using either A or B alone.|
|D||If the question cannot be answered even using A and B together.|
The farthest point from point M which is on the square is the diagonally opposite point.
Length OM ≤ × side of the square ⇒ Length OM ≤ × length of LK (i)
And length of OL ≥ length of LK (ii)
From (i) and (ii) we can conclude that such a point cannot be drawn.
