To get the area of the semicircle, we need to know the length of BC

(1) BC/AB = 3/4

AB = CD; So, we can say BC/CD = 3/4 and <BCD = 90
Hence, Δ BCD = 3-4-5 right triangle.

But, BC can be 3 or any multiple of 3. Hence, Insuff.

(2) BD=25:

No information of CD. Insuff.

(1) & (2) together,

from (1) BC: CD : BD = 3 : 4 : 5
from 2 BD = 25; Hence, BC = 15; Sufficient

Ans: C
