C.

1. angle ABC=30. we can move AC with constant angle ABC and obtain different area - INSUFF.

2. L=18Pi ==> d=18 ==> AB is diameter
but different angles ABC give us different area. - INSUFF

1&2. Area=1/2*(root(3)/2*18)*(1/2*18) - SUFF

C.

S1: Key here is to realize that triangle ABC isnt said to be inscribed, so we cant assume its a right triangle.

S2: says its a right triangle b/c C=18pi. (if any two points equal the diameter of a circle of a triangle, then that triangle is inscribed).

But we dont know the other sides

Together we can assess its a 30, 60, 90 triangle.

was leaning towards C as well, but kinda fluked out as I had forgotten some of the properties, especially the one about the stem not saying triangle was inscribed....i just assumed it

How do you know that AB is the diameter? It's not specifically stated anywhere, so you cannot conclude that the triangle is a right (30/60/90) triangle.

from second statement we have a diameter of circle: 18Pi=Pi*D ==> D=18.

AB is also 18 from question. There is only one possibilitiy: AB=D otherwise AB would be less than D=18
