Area of larger circle = 100π. So, its radius is 10 units.
Area of smaller circle = 64π. So, its radius is 8 units.

The two circles are concentric - have the same center. So, x is the difference between the two radii = 2 units.
Choice A

In the Question, provided that

1. Area of Larger circle is 100π
(π)r^2 = 100π, that gives r = 10

2.Area of smaller circle is 64π
(π)r^2 = 64π, that gives r = 8

The X is the difference in area between smaller circle to larger circle
so X =radius of larger circle - radius of smaller circle = 10-8 = 2

Answer option is A
