Answer :

Diameter of circle = 4 cm


Length of wire = Circumference of circle


If r = radius of circle


Circumference of circle = 2 × π × r=2 × π × 4


=8 × π


If length of wire is halved,


Circumference is also halved


New Circumference = 1/2 × (8 × π)= 4 × π


Let rbe new radius


2 × π × r'= New Circumference = 4 × π


r =


Hence, New diameter = 2 × r'= 2 × 2=4 cm
