Please note D is not the OA - rather it is my random guess after scratching my head for 5 mts.

A

\(\frac{40}{360}=\frac{x}{18\pi}\)

\(x=2\pi\)

How did you get the two 35 s at angle P. I know one of the 35's is because the two lines are parallel, how did u derive the other one ?

the answer will be (A) 2 Pi

Explanation:

L(ARC PO)= 35/360 * 2*Pi*9
=3.5 Pi.

Angle PRO and Angle QPR are same =35 (since Line OR is ll to PQ)

L(ARC PO) = L(ARC QR)=3.5 Pi


L(ARC OPQR)= 180/360 * 2*Pi*9 (Since Arc OPQR forms a semicircle hence theta = 180)
=9 Pi.

hence
L(OPQR) = L(Arc OP)+L(Arc PQ)+L(Arc QR)
L(Arc PQ) = 9 Pi - (3.5 Pi +3.5 Pi)
= 2 Pi

Hence the Option A is correct.

the other angle is 35 because the triangle PR (center) is isosceles: P(center)=R(center)=radius.
