Solution

## The correct option is A 3 cm, 4 cm, 5 cm Let, AX = AZ = a , QZ = QY = b , PX = PY = c We know PA = a + c = 7 cm ..........(i) PQ = b + c = 8 cm .......(ii) QA = a + b = 9 cm .........(iii) (ii) - (iii) → (c + b) - (a + b) = 8 - 9 → c - a = -1 ........(iv) (iv) + (i) → (c - a) + (a + c) = -1 + 7 → 2 c = 6 ; c = 3 cm subtituting c in (i) → a + 3 = 7 ; a = 4 cm subtituting c in (ii) → 3 + b = 8 ; b = 5 cm. so, PX = c = 3 cm ; AZ = a = 4 cm ; QY = b = 5 cm.
