Answer: (c) ad>bc
Explanation :Sinc a,b,c,d are in HP
$HM of a\;\xi\;c\; is\; b$
$HM of b\;\xi\;d\;is\;c\;$
$GM of a\;\xi\;c\; is\;\sqrt{ac} $
$GM of b\;\xi\;d\; is\;\sqrt{bd} $
Knowing that GM>HM for any two numbers
$Multiplying (1)\;\xi\;(2)$
$acbd\;>\;b^2 c^2\qquad\;(3)$
$Dividing \;(3)\; by \;bc$
