Answer A

Since PQ||OR, angle QPR = angle PRO = 35

Since inscribed angle of arc OP is PRO, the measure of arc OP is 2(35) = 70

By same logic measure of arc QR is also 70

Therefore central angle for arc PQ = 180 - (70+70) = 40 degrees

Measure of arc PR = (40/360) * 2 * pi * 9 = 2 pi

Key formula --> measure of arc with inscribed angle x is 2x.

2*pi .
Assume center is C . CRP = CRP = 35 . Since its CPR = CRP = 35
Hence CPQ = 70 . Hence PCQ = 40 .

Lenght 40/360 * 2 * pi * 18/2 = 2*pi A
