Question: Is area of circle > 16π?
Question: Is Radius of circle > 4?
Question: Is Side of the square > 8?

Statement 1: The area of the square is greater than16.
i.e. side of square > 4
but it may or may not be greater than 8 hence
NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: Each of the four shaded regions between the square and the circle has an area equal to 9 – 9/4*π.
i.e. \((1/4[(2r)^2 - πr^2] = 9 - (9/4)π\)
i.e. r = 3
i.e. r is NOT greater than 4 hence

SUFFICIENT

Answer: option B

Answer is B
By the first statement, we can say that the area of circle will be minimum 4*Pie i.e., approx 12 but it can also be greater than 16. Hence Insufficient.
By the second statement, we will get a specific value of radius. Hence sufficient.

GMATinsight:

Statement 2: Each of the four shaded regions between the square and the circle has an area equal to 9 – 9/4*π.
i.e. (1/4[(2r)2−πr2]=9−(9/4)π(1/4[(2r)2−πr2]=9−(9/4)π
i.e. r = 3
i.e. r is NOT greater than 4 hence

Hello, could you please explain statement 2:
LHS of i.e. (1/4[(2r)2−πr2]=9−(9/4)π

How did you arrive at it?

One shaded portion at one of the corners = (1/4)*(Area of Square - Area of Circle) = \((1/4)*[(2r)^2−πr^2]=9−(9/4)π\)

Side of the square = 2r i.e. area of square = \((2r)^2\)

I hope this helps!!!

P.S. The Circle is inscribed in square i.e. Circle is tightly packed and touching all sides of teh square
