Answer Choice: D

Required Perimeter = Major Arc BD (circle with center A) + Major Arc BD (circle with center C)

P= 2*\(\pi\)*s*270/360 + 2*\(\pi\)*s*270/360

P= 3\(\pi\)s

Perimeter = \(\frac{3}{4}\) circumference of one circle * 2

Vertex A of square ABCD = 90°. That 90° "cuts" (shortens) the perimeter of circle with center A by \(\frac{90}{360}=\frac{1}{4}\)

One part of the perimeter of the curved figure hence is \(\frac{3}{4}\) of the circumference of Circle A.

Vertex C of the square does exactly the same thing to the circle with center C.

So perimeter of curved figure =
\(\frac{3}{4}\) circumference of Circle A +
\(\frac{3}{4}\) circumference of Circle C

Radius of both circles = square's side length = \(s\)

Circumference of each circle:\(2πr = 2πs\)

Perimeter of curved figure:
\((2) * (\frac{3}{4} *2πs)=\frac{12πs}{4}=3πs\)

Answer D
