D. 32.pi

The figure is made up of two full circles of radius 4. Hence area =2*pi*4^2 =32.pi

There are two ways to solve it.

Method 1:

Find the area of the 4 sectors.

Two sectors have angle 90 degrees at the centre and the other two have angle 270 degrees at the centre.

The radius for all the four sectors(r) = 4

Total area = $$2* \frac{90}{360} * π * r^2 + 2* \frac{270}{360} * π * r^2$$
= $$2 * π * 4^2$$
= $$32 π$$

Method 2:

If we visualises properly, we will notice that we have two circles in this diagram.
The radius of the circle = 4
Thus, total area = $$2 * π * r^2 = 32π$$

The figure basically comprises two circles, each circle with radius 4.

So, Total area of shaded portion= 2*(πr^2)= 2*π*16= 32π.
