Explanatory Answer | GMAT Geometry

Number of diagonals in a polygon

The number of diagonals of an n-sided convex polygon = \\frac{\text{n(n - 3)}}{\text{2}})
This polygon has 63 sides. Hence, n = 63.
Therefore, number of diagonals = \\frac{\text{63 × 60}}{\text{2}}) = 1890.

Choice B is the correct answer.
