Solution

The correct option is **D** You cannot construct any type of triangle using these measurements.

For constructing a triangle, the sum of any two sides must be greater than the third side. But here, AB (3 cm) + BC (5 cm) = 8 cm; is less than AC(8.5 cm)

So, Goutham can't construct a triangle using sides AB = 3 cm, BC = 5 cm, and AC = 8.5 cm.
