Expert Answer
Join any one of the diagonal, say BD.
We know that, in a triangle, sum of two sides is greater than the third side.
 
Now, in triangle ABD, we have:
AB + AD > BD         ... (1)
 
In triangle BDC, we have:
BD + CD > BC         ... (2)
 
Adding (1) and (2), we get,
AB + AD + BD + CD > BD + BC
AB + AD + CD > BC  (Subtracting BD from both sides)
 
Thus, we have proved that sum of three sides is greater than the fourth side.
