Circumference = 360 degrees arc = 144cm
24cm = 24/144 * 360 = 60 degrees

A. 60

arc to circumference proportion:
24/144 or 1/6
angle this arc makes should also be in the same proportion. so
angle = 360 / 6 = 60

OA is A.

Here goes the detailed explanation:
This problem can be solved with the formula

Arc Length = Circumference * ((Arc Measure)/360)

Solving for Arc Measure,

24 cm = 144 cm * ((Arc Measure)/360)
24 cm/144 cm = ((Arc Measure)/360)
24 cm * 360 = (Arc Measure) * 144 cm
8640 cm = (Arc Measure) * 144 cm
8640 cm/144 cm = Arc Measure
Arc Measure = 60

A.

Length of the arc = (n/360)(Circumference)
24 = (n/360)(144), solving for n we get n = 60
