It should be B.

Length of Arc is quarter of circumference of circle so

\(Arc = 2πr/4 = 2π6/4 = 3π\)

Rectangle ABCR is sum of two triangles \(\triangle ABC\) and \(\triangle ARC\) where diagonals \(RB\) and \(AC\) are equal to radius of the Circle. If it were a regular quarter circle, perimeter would have been 3π + 2*radius. However, It appears the shaded region just subtracts length and breadth of the rectangle (given as 8) from the two radius and bypasses it with the diagonal of the rectangle instead.

\(3π + 12 - 8 + 6 = 10 + 3π\)

Perimeter of shaded region = Perimeter of quarter circle SRT - (Length + Width of rectangle) + Diagonal of rectangle (AC)

The diagonal of the rectangle is same as the radius of the circle i.e. 6.

Perimeter of quarter circle SRT = 6 + 6 + (1/4)*2π*6 = 12 + 3π

Perimeter of shaded region = 12 + 3π - 8 + 6 = 10 + 3π

Answer (B)
