36 such arcs i.e. 18 arcs of length 3 and 18 arcs of length a
i.e. Total Circumference$$= 18*(a+3) = 18a+54$$

Question: Degree measure of arc of length a = ?

Statement 1: The circumference of the circle is 90.
i.e. $$18*(a+3) = 18a+54=90$$
now $$(Angle/360) = 36/90$$
i.e. Angle for all $$18a = 144$$
i.e. angle of $$a = 8º$$
SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The length of a is 2
Using this also total circumference can be calculated
as $$18a+54 = 18*2+54 = 90$$
i.e. now $$(Angle/360) = 36/90$$
i.e. Angle for all $$18a = 144$$
i.e. angle of $$a = 8º$$
SUFFICIENT
