##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Circles: Let's apply the details in formula directly.

Area of semicircle => (π * 12)/2 = 0.5 π
Area of circle should be less than the area of semicircle:-
Area = π * ((√2 + 1)/2)2 = π/4 * (2 + 1 + 2√2) = (0.75 + √2) * π > 0.5π
Area = π * (√2 − 1/2)2 = π * (2 + 1/4 − √2) = 0.85π > 0.5π
Area = π * (1 − 2√2)2 = π * (1 + 8 − 4√2) = (9 − 5.6)π = 3.4π > 0.5π
Area = π * (√2 − 1)2 =π * (2 + 1 − 2√2)=0.2π

The question is "Find the radius of the circle"

##### Hence, the answer is (√2 − 1).

Choice D is the correct answer.
