Concept
- The longest chord of the certain circle is the diameter of the circle.

Formula used: Distance = $$\sqrt{(x1-x2)^2 + (y1-y2)^2}$$

The distace between the points R and S is $$\sqrt{(7-7)^2 + (-3-7)^2} = \sqrt{100} = 10$$

Therefore, the area of the circle with diameter 10 is $$\pi*(\frac{10}{2})^2 = 25\pi$$ (Option D)
