Each arc equals \(45°\)

Number of stones = number of arcs

So number of arcs = \(\frac{360°}{45°}=8\)

Option C

A very valuable point to note here is that when there are stones arranged in a straight line there would be n-1 segments .
But when they are connected in circle there would be as many segments as stones .

In my opinion, it's best to imagine the entire ring and manually count the stones, just to avoid any calculation error.

There are 8 stones on the ring.

Ans C

Hi @Shobhit

Can you explain How one can imagine and manually calculate the number of stones without knowing the angle between them or without knowing that the stones are equally spaced?

If the angel between the stones would have been 10 then there would have been 36 stones are if the stones were not equally spaced then the number could have been different.

I think you need to know the number of sectors first and the may be visualise the ring with all sectors and stones on it

Hi,

What I meant was, considering the data in the given figure, we know that there are 8 equally spaced sectors of 45 degrees each. Basis, we can imagine the ring and manually count the stones as well. This is just to avoid double counting any stone that's part of two adjacent sectors.

C is the correct answer.

360/45 = 8
