Area of shaded region = Area of Quarter Circle - Area of triangle POQ

Area of shaded region = (1/4)π2^2 - (1/2)*2*2 = π-2

Answer: option E

Area of shaded region = (Sector area) - (Triangle Area)

• Sector area as fraction of the circle's area

The key to these kinds of problems often is:
"The sector is what fraction of the circle?"

Use the sector's central angle (given, = 90°) to find that fraction

$$\frac{Part}{Whole}=\frac{SectorAngle}{360°}=\frac{90}{360}=\frac{1}{4}=\frac{SectorArea}{CircleArea}$$

Area of sector = $$\frac{1}{4}$$ area of circle

• Area of circle and area of sector

Circle area, r = 2: $$πr^2 = 4π$$
Sector area: $$\frac{4π}{4}$$= $$π$$

• Area of triangle

Area of triangle with radii as sides (s = b and h):
$$\frac{s*s}{2} = \frac{4}{2}$$ = $$2$$

• Area of shaded region
= (Area of sector) - (Area of triangle)

Area of shaded region = $$π - 2$$

Answer E
