Re: In the figure above, what is the area of the circular region with cent [#permalink]
S(1): Helps us understand MOT is a right angled but no information about lengths. So area cannot be calculated. Not suff.
S(2): Gives area of the triangle using which we cannot calculate radius(OM). Hence Not suff.

Combining we get that MOT is a right angled Triangle hence 1/2*OM*OT=4. Using this we cannot calculate OM value. Thus insufficient.

Hence answer is E. Not sure how it is D. Would love to read the solution for this.

(1) MN is perpendicular to RS.
(2) The area of triangular region OMT is 4.

Kudos for a correct solution.
