E. $$24\pi$$

Area of enclosed region=4*Area of semicircle+Area of square (refer affixed diagram)
Given, length of semicircular arc=2π
Or, $$\frac{2πr}{2}=2π$$
Or, r=2

Area of semi-circle=$$\frac{1}{2}*π*r^2=2π$$
Area of square=4*(2r)=16

So , area of enclosed region=4*2π+16=8π+16

Ans. (C)

If one SEMI-circle has a perimeter of 2π, then an ENTIRE circle must have a circumference of Circumference = (diameter)(π)
So, if the circumference of the circle is , then the diameter of each circle is 4 This means the square in the middle of the figure must have area 16. Now we need only find the area of 4 SEMIcircles.
If we combine 2 semicircles we get an entire circle.
So, if we combine 4 semicircles we get 2 entire circles.

Each circle has diameter 4, which means each circle has RADIUS 2
Area of a circle = π(radius²)
So, area of one circle = π(2²) = 4π
So, the area of TWO circles = 8π

So, the TOTAL area = 16 + 8π

Brent
