POQ is 60 degree, and so its length should be (1/6)*pi*r

(A)

That was my guess too, but we are both wrong.

POQ= 60 => PQ= 60/360 * the perimeter of the circle= 1/6 * 2pi*r
=1/3 pi*r

BTW, Matt, there're some typos in the question AB should be diameter, not radius, right?!

Thanx Laxie. OA is (B). Drawing two additional support lines OP and OQ really simplify this problem. Three equilateral triangles give us an interior angle of 60dg. 60=1/6 or the circum. 1/6*2pi(r)= pi(r)/3
