Solution

The correct option is B False

The statement is false. Consider the triangle with sides 3, 4 and 5.
3 + 4 > 5
but 32+42=52

Generally, for any right triangle, the hypotenuse is less than the sum of other two sides (triangle inequality) and the square of the hypotenuse is the sum of the squares of the other two sides (Pythagoras Theorem)
