Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is a rule for triangles...the sum of two sides must be greater than the third side A) 5...suppose i take 5 and 4 as two sides...this must be greater than 9..but it's not..therefore it's not 5 let's look at D) 4 4+4 is not greater than 9 either so that's not it continue with this logic...do you know the answer?
