##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Geometry - Triangles: Checking out the possibilities of the third side will give the answer.

xy = 4
xy could be 2 *2 or 4 * 1
221
222 These are the possible triangles.
223
441

22x will be a triangle if x is 1, 2 or 3 (trial and error).
44x is a triangle only if x is 1.
1. 221 is acute. 12 + 22 > 22
2. 222 is equilateral. So acute.
3. 223 is obtuse. 22 + 22 < 32
4. 144 is acute. 12 + 42 > 42

The question is " x, y, z are integer that are side of an obtuse-angled triangle. If xy = 4, find z."
And so, the third side has to be 3

##### Hence, the answer is 3.

Choice B is the correct answer.
