This question is from CAT Mensuration in CAT Geometry.In this question, there is a circle in which some more circles are drawn inside and based on the given condition we need to answer. Mensuration Questions in the CAT exam can be solved with practical approach and thought process rather than just knowing theorems from CAT Geometry. Even if one is not completely prepared for CAT Geometry exam, he or she should be able to do well in Mensuration problems tested by the CAT Exam. Knowing Mensuration formulas is important. Make sure you master Mensuration questions for CAT exam. This question requires a bit of visualization and the ability to express one area in terms of another.

Question 12: PQRS is a circle and circles are drawn with PO, QO, RO and SO as diameters areas A and B are shaded A/B is equal to

- π
- 1
- \\frac{π}{4}\\)
- 2

1

Here,

Let the radius of PQRS be 2r

∴ Radius of each of the smaller circles = \\frac{2r}{2}\\) = r

∴ Area A can be written as

A = π (2r)^{2} – 4 x π(r)^{2} (Area of the four smaller circles) + B (since, B has been counted twice in the previous subtraction)

=> A = 4πr^{2} - 4πr^{2} + B

=> A = B

=> \\frac{A}{B}\\) = 1

The question is **" PQRS is a circle and circles are drawn with PO, QO, RO and SO as diameters areas A and B are shaded A/B is equal to "**

Choice B is the correct answer.
