A triangle formed using the diameter will have an angle of $$90^o$$ subtended on the circle.

Let diameter = 4, radius = 2, Area of circle = 4π

Area of triangle = 1/2 * 2 root2 * 2 root2 = 4

Ratio = 1:π

C

Here R = h

So, Area of the Triangle is $$\frac{1}{2}*R*2R =R^2$$

Area of the CIrcle is $$πR^2$$

So, Ratio of Area of Triangle to the Area of the Circle is $$R^2 : πR^2 = 1:π$$, Answer must be (C)
