Let p and q are the radius of circular regions P and Q respectively.
Given, area of P minus the area of Q is 15π
Or, $$p^2-q^2=15$$
Or, (p+q)(p-q)=15------------(1)

Given, P has a circumference that is 4 times that of Q
or, p=4q-------------(2)

from(1), $$(p+\frac{p}{4})(p-\frac{p}{4})=15$$
Or, $$\frac{5p}{4} * \frac{3p}{4}=15$$
Or, $$p^2=16$$
or, p=4

Ans. (C)
