The question asks: is $$\pi r^2 > 2\pi r$$?
Is $$r > 2$$?

The first statement is NOT sufficient because r can be less as well as more than 2.
The second statement IS sufficient, because it says that r > 2.

what is asked, R>2 ? or R>sqrt(2) ?

Why do you think it's $$r > \sqrt 2$$?

Given: $$\pi r^2 > 2\pi r$$.

Reduce by $$\pi r$$ to get $$r > 2$$.
