Solution

The correct option is C

4.61 cm


Construct a regular hexagon ABCDEF of  side 5.8 cm.

Draw the angle bisectors of   A and B. Let it intersect at point I.

From point I, draw IP perpendicular to AB.

With I as the centre and IP as radius, draw a circle.This will touch all the sides of the regular hexagon.

Measure IP.  IP = 5 cm (approx.)
