# Circumference of a circle is always

a. more than three times of its diameter

b. three times of its diameter

c. less than three times of its diameter

d. three times of its radius

**Solution:**

A __circle__ can be defined as a 2D figure formed by a set of points that are adjacent to each other and are equidistant from a fixed point.

The fixed point in this curved plane figure is called the center of the circle, the common distance between the points from the center is called a radius, and a line that crosses from the center of the circle starting from one point to the other is called a diameter.

The __circumference of a circle__ is its boundary or the length of the complete arc of a circle.

We know that

Circumference of a circle = 2πr

Value of π = 3.14

Circumference of a circle = 2 × 3.14 × r

As Diameter = 2r

Circumference of a circle = 3.14 d

Therefore, the circumference is always more than three times of its diameter.
