let radius of circle Q = 2 and circle p = 3
so area of P = 9Pi
$$\frac{9\pi r^2}{4}$$
option D sufficies

Radius of Circle $$Q = r$$

Radius of Circle $$P = 50$$% greater than $$r = r + \frac{50}{100}r = \frac{100r + 50r}{100} = \frac{150r}{100} = \frac{3}{2}r$$

Area of Circle $$P = {\pi}*(\frac{3}{2}r)^2$$ $$= \frac{9\pi r^2}{4}$$
