A. \(796\pi\)

B. \(2,100\pi\)

C. \(8,400\pi\)

D. \(40,000\pi\)

E. \(48,400\pi\)

radius of Ninth outermost circle - radius of Eigth outermost circle = 212-210 = 2
i.e. width of each track = 2

radius of Seventh outermost circle = 210-2 = 208
radius of Sixth outermost circle = 208-2 = 206
radius of Fifth outermost circle = 206-2 = 204
radius of Forth outermost circle = 204-2 = 202
radius of Third outermost circle = 202-2 = 200
radius of Second outermost circle = 200-2 = 198

Second track is made of second and third circle hence area of second track \(= π(200^2-198^2) = 796π\)

Answer: option A

if the give details are of the outermost lane then the inner most lane will be of 200-198 (feet)

The area of the lane will be like Pi*((200*200)-(198*198)).
=796Pi.=Option A
