Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nd u can see that dw:1442241878543:dw in this figure OA =OB=OC=OD=radius of circle =r lets say its r cm ok :) when u apply pythagorus theorem to triangle AOB u get AO^2 + BO^2 = AB^2 r^2 + r^2=AB^2 2r^2=AB^2 \[AB=r \sqrt{2}\] similarly when u find BC, CD and DA you will find that they all are equal to AB :) so this figure has 4 equal sides and square is the only figure given in the options which has 4 sides so square is the answer
