Correct Answer - Option 2 : $\sqrt{65}$

Concept:

Let A(x1, y1) and B(x2, y2) be two points on a 2D plane the the distance between A and B is given by:$\rm \sqrt{(x_{2}-x_{1})^{2}+(y_{2}-y_{1})^{2}}$.

Calculation:

Given: A(2, - 3) and B(3, 5) are two points on a 2D plane.

As we know that, the distance between the points A(x1, y1) and B(x2, y2) is given by:$\rm \sqrt{(x_{2}-x_{1})^{2}+(y_{2}-y_{1})^{2}}$

Let d be the distance between the points A and B.

$\Rightarrow \rm d=\sqrt{(3-2)^{2}+(5+3)^{2}}=\sqrt{64+1}=\sqrt{65}$

Hence, the correct option is 2.
