(D) 1 : √2
(E) 1 : 2(pi)

Diameter be D and diagonal be y then D/Y = ?
given is area of square = area of circle
=> 1/2*Y^2 = 1/4*pi*D^2
=>D/Y= sqrt(2/pi) = 2/sqrt(2pi)

Ans A it is.

Refer diagram below:

\pi r^2 = a^2

a = \sqrt{\pi}r

\frac{Diameter of circle}{Diagonal of Square} = \frac{2r}{\sqrt{2} \sqrt{\pi}r}

Answer = \frac{2}{\sqrt{2 \pi} = A
