    Answer: (3) 190 meters

    Explanation:-
    Let the internal radius of circular path = X m
    Then, the external radius of the circular path = (X + 5 ) m

    According to the question,
    2 x pai x X/ 2 x pai x (X + 5) = 19/20
    X/ (X + 5) = 19/20
    20 X = 19 X + 95
    20 X – 19 X = 95
    X = 95
    Then, the internal diameter of circular path = 95 cm
    Therefore, diameter of the circular path  =2 x 95
    = 190 cm

    Hence, the answer is (3) 190 cm.
