As we can see the point (6,4) is a centre of the circle. The dash line is a radius wchich is 10. Circle area =\(\pi * r^2\) \(= 100 *\pi\) = 300

The shaded region is around \(\frac{2}{3}\) of the circle area => \(\frac{2}{3} * 300 = 200\)

Hence, the answer is C

Can you eloborate how you arrived at 2/3??

The shaded region is around 70% of the circle and 70% is around 2/3.

The shaded region could be seen as sum of three areas: a quarter of a circle and two rectangles (the shaded region is a bit less)

Area of quarter of a circle \(= (\pi * r^2)/4 = (3.14 * 10^2)/4 = 314/4 = 75\) approx

Area of each rectangle \(= 16*4 + 6*10 = 124\)

So total shaded area will be a bit less than 75 + 124 = 199

The reduced area at the top of the top rectangle is less than 6*2/2 = 6
The reduced area at the right of the lower triangle will be even less.

Answer (C)

A simpler approach- I drew a square around the entire shaded region, the length is 16 and the height is 14, 16x14 = 224, the shaded region would slightly be less than 224, giving you an answer of C

Interesting question. However can someone please clarify if this kind of question is indeed it in the scope of GMAT exam?

Thank you
