    Answer: (3) 4.5 cm 

    Explanation:-
    The length of the rectangle = 9.8 cm
    The breadth of the rectangle = 5.4 cm

    Then,  area of the rectangle = 9.8 x 5.4
    =  52.92 cm²

    Rectangle reshaped  into the form of a circle.
    πr² = 52.92
    r² = 52.92 x 7/22
    r² = 370.65/22
    r² = 16.847
    Square root on both side,
    r = 4.10

    Then, the value of the radius is 4.5 cm (Approximately)

    Hence, the correct answer is option (3) 4.5 cm
