Area of an circle inscribed in a square = \((Pi/4)*Area of the square\)
= \((Pi/4)*S^2\)

Area of a circle circumscribed in a square = (Pi/2)*Area of the square
= \((Pi/2)*S^2\)

ratio of the area of the larger circle to the area of the smaller circle = \(((Pi/2)*S^2)/((Pi/4)*S^2)\) = 2:1

Option B is correct

diameter of smaller circle ; s and radius s/2

diameter of larger circule : s sqrt2 ; radius s/sqrt2

so area : pi * s^2 /2 * 4/s^2
solving we get 2:1 IMO B
