A Valentine's Day Problem

Discrete Mathematics Level 4

On Valentine's day as usually happens , there was a girl who had recieved 2 proposals . The boys who had proposed to her were Pratik Shastri and Vraj Mehta . The girl however liked both of them , so she was in a fix .

However I knew that both were Scholars so I asked her conduct a test to decide who would get to be her boy friend .

Given below is her test :

" A given line segment is divided at random into \(3\) parts . What is the probability that they form the sides of a possible triangle ? "

Eventually one of them did go on to solve the question correctly and win the heart of his Lady Love .

Your question : What is the correct answer as answered by the Lucky Boy ?

Kudos to those who can guess who won the girl's heart .
