It will be the ratio of area of square enclosed within (5,0), (0,5), (-5,0), (0,-5) and the original rectangle and will be approx 25% (~22%).

I think I should be more like "the ratio of area of circle enclosed with in radius 5 and the original rectangle 24 x 10"
Area of rectangle = |12 -(-12)| x |5 -(-5)| = 24 x 10 = 240
Area of any point in circle = Pi*5^2 = 25Pi
25Pi is approximately 25 * 3

Prob[Circle in Rectangle] = 25 * 3/ 24 * 10 = 25 / 80 = around 30 - 34%

Choice C is the correct answer.

Thanks devilmirror for correcting.....committed another silly mistake.....hope do not do during the first 15-20 questions in the actual test.
