You have all the sides of the pentagon except the right-most one of the rectangle. The sum of the other sides is equal to 4 + 3 + 10 + 10 = 27. So your perimeter must be

**greater**than 27 (since you have one more side to take into account and it's obviously greater than 0). There's only one option that's greater than 27.
