Solution

The correct option is A

circumference


Let Ankur, Syed and David be denoted by A, S and D respectively in the circular park.

OS=OD=OA=20 m  [Radius =20 m]

Construction: Draw OMSA

OM= 10 m

Now, AS=SD=AD

In AMO

Applying Pythagoras Theorem 

AM2=AO2MO2=202102

=400100=300

AM=300

AS=2×AM=2300

=2×103=203 m
