Hi Paul! Thanks for the greetings it's good to be back - had a death in the family, changed careers, and found a girlfriend. Ready to get back to business and take the GMAT in December! I'm reading all these posts of guys who started posting at the time I started who have broken the 700 barrier - it's very encouraging. I'm assuming you're one of them.

Sorry not the "right" answer. Don't feel bad - this is one of those weird PR questions.

9/8?

I get to 2/P^-2 which is approximately 2/1.75 but then stuck with answer choices.

I get E. well i dunno if I am wrong but this is how I have done.

square of the side is s

s^2= pi * r^2
s= (sqrt of Pi) * r

ratio of the perimeters= 4s/2 * pi * r
substituting value of s..
i get 2/sqrt of pi which is equvialent to 2/1.77 so going with E

1.
S = pi*R^2
C = a^2.
S = C -> a*a = pi*R*R - > a = R*sqrt(pi)
2.
Pc = 2*pi*R and Ps = 4*a
->
Pc/Ps = pi*R/(2*a) = sqrt(pi)/2 ~ .89 ~ 8/9
