## Problem

There are $\binom{8}{4}=70$ distinct quadrilaterals that can be formed from the vertices of a regular octagon. Which of these statements must hold true for all those quadrilaterals? $\textbf{(A) }\text{All of the 70 quadrilaterals are rectangles.}\qquad\textbf{(B) }\text{All of the 70 quadrilaterals are cyclic.}\qquad\textbf{(C) }\text{All of the 70 quadrilaterals are trapezoids.}\qquad\textbf{(D) }\text{All of the 70 quadrilaterals are kites.}\qquad\textbf{(E) }\text{None of the above statements are true.}\qquad$

## Solution

All regular octagons can be inscribed in a circle, thus any subset of $4$ vertice's from this octagon also all lie on the same circle. It is easy to see that none of the other answer choices work. Therefore, the answer is $\boxed{\textbf{(B) }\text{All of the 70 quadrilaterals are cyclic.}}$
