A

Given that ORP = 35
Assuming X as center, in the traingle XPR, angle XPR = 35 because it's got both sides equal (which is radius)
that makes angle XPQ = 70 and the angle of the arc, PXQ = 40
that makes the lenght of arc 2pi

Yup me too...I drew all the lines possible in the figure, but didn't look at XP and XR at the same time to realize that this angle will also be 35......spent a lot of time and even then could not figure out..:(

Good job man...

+1 for you...
