A regular Pentagon will have all its angles EQUAL irrespective of it is inscribed in a circle or not
so SUM of angles = $$(n-2)*180=(5-2)*180=3*180$$..
each angle = $$3*\frac{180}{5} = 108$$
suff

(2) The radius of the circle is 5 inches.
Nothing much
Insuff

IMO: A

Statement 1- (n-2)*180 will give sum of all angles. Since all angles are equal we will get measure of each angle.No Need to calculate.

Statement 2: We don't know anything about Polygon, whether it's regular or not.=>Insufficient.

Option 1: As we know that its regular pentagon, it has 5 sides. By applying formula to find interior angle (n-2)180/n - Where n = number of sides we can find the angle.
Sufficient.
Option 2: But just mere radius we cannot find the angle.
Insufficient.
