How many diagonals can be drawn by joining the angular points of an octagon?
(A) 14
(B) 20
(C) 21
(D) 28


Answer: (B)

Explanation: In an octagon, for each of the 8 vertices, 5 diagonals can be drawn, so total 5 * 8 = 40 diagonals can be constructed. But each diagonal is double counted, so there are 20 diagonals in a regular octagon.

Option (B) is correct.
