A. \(\sqrt{2}:P\)
B. \(1:2\)
C. \(2:P\)
D. \(1:\sqrt{2}\)
E. \(2:1\)

here i found that logically D=S or 2r=S SO r/s= 1/2 ....is my reason correct?

Also, the whole cube/hemisphere is a bit of a misnomer. The situation really is just a circle inscribed in a square. Once you draw that, it's easy to get B
