E.

Solving what it is asking for...
Set R = radius of circle
r = radius of semi circle
The question is asking if
P*(R^2) < P*(r^2) / 2
Same as if
(R/r)^2 < 1/2
R/r < 1/1.4
R/r < 5/7

(1) R/r < 1
Can't tell, INSUFFICIENT

(2) 2*P*R < P*r + 2r
=> 2*P*R < r*(P+2)
=> R/r < (P+2) / (2*P)
=> R/r < 5.14 / 6.28
=> R/r <~ 5/6
Can't tell, INSUFFICIENT

Together, still get R/r < 5/6, INSUFFICIENT.
