ABC is a 30-60-90 triangle since the AB is the diameter.

Since AB = 12, AC = 6√3

Now if ARC BC makes an angle of 30°, it would make 60° at the center.
Length of arc $$BC = 60/360*2π*6 = 2π$$

Thus, perimeter of the highlighted region = AB+AC+arcBC = 12+6√3+2π

Answer D.

What I don't understand about this problem- why wouldn't it work if we tried to use 30 degrees to calculate the arc length? Using that I arrived at answer B- how do you know its a 30 60 90 triangle?

We know it's a 30-60-90 triangle because any inscribed triangle that has the diameter of the circle as one of its sides is a right triangle. If it's a right triangle, one of the angles is 90. We are given that the other angle is 30. Therefore it must be 30 + 90 + X = 180. X = 60.

(Converse is also true. IF a right triangle is inscribed in a circle, its hypotenuse will be the diameter.)

(Take a look at GMAT Club Math Book, Triangles - Right Triangle Inscribed in a Circle, $$https://gmatclub.com/forum/math-triangles-87197.html$$)
