radius = 4 = RS= ST
angle = 120 *2 ; 240
2 * 4* pi * 240/360 = \(\frac{16 \pi}{3}\)
IMO C

I have forgotten the formulas of circles. Can anyone explain the answer to me?

How do you know that R is the radius in this case?

How have you considered radius to be 4?

According to me,

Join OS ,OR and OT
we know OS =OR=OT=r

Consider triangle ORS
OR=OS =r
=> Angle ORS= Angle OSR ( angles opp to equal sides)

Similarly in triangle OST
OS=OT=r
=> Angle OST= OTS

But OS=OR=OT
=> angle ors= angle osr = angle ost = angle ots

Given=> Angle RST = 120
=> as angle OST = angle OSR
Angle OST = 60

=> in triangle OST
ANGLE OST = ANGLE OTS ( as proved above)
Angle ots =60
=> angle sot =60 ( by angle sum prop of triangle)
Therefore triangle OST is an equilateral triangle as all angles are equal
=> os=ot=st =4

Similarly Triangle ORS Is equilateral triangle
=>rs=or=os =4

Now , calculating

For arc RWT
(Angle /360)* 2*pi*r=( 240/360) *2* pi* 4
= > 16Pi/3
Therefore option C

Correct me if I am wrong, otherwise Kudos. :)
