From 1: Area os sector = πr^2*40/360.
Since radius is given.
1 is sufficient.

From 2: C=2πr. r = 5.
Again sufficient.

D is the answer

(1) The radius of the circle is 5.
(2) The circumference of the circle is 10π.

Determining Area of sector:-
a) Radius and b)Angle of sector are the basic requirement.

St1:- The radius of the circle is 5.
Sector angle and radius is known.
Sufficient.

St2:- The circumference of the circle is 10π.
Radius can be calculated if circumference is given. Sector angle is already given.
Sufficient.

Ans. (D)

Solution


Given:
    • x = 40 degrees

To find:
    • Area of the sector shown in the figure

Approach and Working:
    • Area of a sector which subtends an angle of x degrees at the center = ᴨr2 * x/360, where r is the radius of the circle
    • We know x, we need the value of ‘r’ to find the answer

Analysing Statement 1
    • We are given that r = 5
Therefore, Statement 1 alone is sufficient to answer this question

Analysing Statement 2
    • We are given that 2ᴨr = 10ᴨ
    • Implies, r = 5
Therefore, Statement 2 alone is sufficient to answer this question.

Hence, the correct answer is option D.

Answer: D
