Thank you.

Angle of minor arc OP = 2 x inscribed angle ORP
= 2 x 35 = 70deg
Similarly, arc QR = 70deg
Therefore, Arc PQ = 180 -70 -70 = 40deg
length of minor arc PQ = n/360 x circumference
= 40/360 x (pi)(18)
= 2pi

Denote center of circle as C.

CR = CP = Radius of circle. So CRP = isoceles triangle with angle CPR = angle CRP = 35.

So angle PCR = 110, and angle PCO = 70.

Lenght of arc OP = Length of arc QR = 70/360 * 18pi = 7pi/2

Length of arc PQ
= Length of arc OR (semi-circle) - 2(length of arc OP)
= 9pi - 7pi
= 2pi

Yipe 2*pi is right. OA is (A).
