Simplified question stem - - > what is the radius of the circle.

Both statements individually gives us the radius.

To determine:- $$\frac{Area}{circumference}$$

St1:- r=10 unit
hence both area and circumference can be determined, subsequently ratio can be computed.
Sufficient.

St2:-The area of the circle is 100π square units
Radius can be determined if area is known.
So,circumference can be determined, subsequently ratio can be computed.
Sufficient.

Solution

Given:
• We are given a circle

To find:
• The ratio of the area of circle to its circumference

Approach and Working:
• Area/ Circumference = r/2

Analysing Statement 1
• We are given r = 10
• Thus, the ratio = 10/2 = 5
Therefore, Statement 1 alone is sufficient to answer this question

Analysing Statement 2
• Area = 100ᴨ, implies ᴨr2 = 100ᴨ
• Thus, r = 10
Therefore, Statement 2 alone is sufficient to answer this question.

Hence, the correct answer is option D.
