Kudos for
R.A.ELet M and F be connected, so we have two right angled \(\triangle\) i. e. \(\triangle EMF\) and \(\triangle GCD\).
Since it is a rectangle , so BC = AD and AB = CD
Now we can see the length of the base \(GD > ME\), so the hypotenuse for the \(\triangle EMP > \triangle GCD\)
I.e. Length of EF < Length of GC.
** Try taking some values for the rectangle, the result will be the same
