Solution

The correct option is D 3.5 cm

Draw a triangle ABC with the given specifications, AB=6.5 cm, AC = 7 cm and BC = 3 cm.

Draw perpendicular bisectors of sides AB and AC, they meet at O. Join OB.

So, O is the centre and OB is the radius of the circumcircle of ABC.

From the above constructions, we see that the circumradius of ABC is 3.5 cm.
