\(C. 32π\)
\(D. 48π\)
\(E. 64π\)



So,here is my approach :

Small circle dia = 4 cm
3 small circles make up the larger circle and so dia of larger circle = 12
Hence radius of larger circle = 12/2 = 6 cm

Area of shaded reg= Area of larger circle - Area of 7 smaller circles = pi(6^2 - 7*(2^2)) = 8pi

Hence OA should be A

The radius of the large circle is \(2*2 + 2 = 6.\) Thus, the area of the large circle is \(6^2π = 36π,\) and the area of each of the seven small circles is \(2^2π = 4π.\)
Thus, the area of the shaded region is \(36π – 7(4π) = 8π.\)

Therefore, the answer is A.
Answer: A
