D

Area of square = 3600 m^2

Area of circle with diameter as 60=pi.60^2/4
=900.pi

Fraction that is not flower bed is 3600-900.pi/3600
=900(4-pi)/3600
=(4-pi)/4

Since side = 60, the diameter of the circle is also 60 and so the radius is 30.

The area of the square is 60 x 60 = 3600 and the area of the circle is π x 30^2 = 900π.

The part of the plot that is not part of the bed is (area of square) - (area of circle) = 3600 - 900π = 900(4 - π)

So the fraction of the garden plot area that is not part of the flower bed is 900(4 - π)/3600 = (4 - π)/4.

Answer: D
