C.

The path followed by P is a quarter circle. Hence the length is 2*pi*r/4. Here r=1. Hence pi/2

This is a question where we need to have the ability to visualize properly.

From the diagram, we can notice that the position of S has not changed.

Thus, if we consider S as the centre and the length SP as the radius of a circle, we can easily say that the length SP was rotated by 90 degrees and hence the trajectory followed by the point P is of an arc of a quarter circle ( a sector of circle with central angle as 90 degrees)

Thus the length of the path = \(\frac{90}{360} * 2πr = \frac{1}{4} * 2 * π * 1 = \frac{π}{2}\)

Therefore the correct answer is Option C.

We can see that the point P is rotated about point S, as the position of point S is unchanged.

Sector of rotation is 90 degrees or 1/4* Circumference= 1/4*2πr= πr/2.

Now, we are given that radius= SP= SP2= 1.

Therefore, Length of rotation= π/2.

Ans C
