I think the answer is A. Its a Square and the radius is given  we can get Base and height. Thus area of triangle!

Attachment: 20151213_1646.png although i get ans A i have some doubts regarding option B (2) CDE is isosceles. can we say then ED=EC and in that case both EC and ED will meet at point E which is mid of AB? Experts plz reply... regards

Experts plz reply... regards for statemtn 2 u r right..but u didn't look at more possibilities its GIVEN CDE is isosceles , BUT the sides which are equal its not given(that u assumed ED=EC) any 2 sides can be equal. thats y its insufficient hope it helps

Hi rohit8865, You are correct that statement 2 tells us that EC=ED because they are each a hypotenuse of a triangle that shares a side with the square, and therefore they must both be larger than the side length CD. That would also mean that point E is the midpoint of side AB. The real reason that statement 2 is insufficient is that it doesn't provide any of the side lengths. Without any measurements, we cannot calculate the area of the triangle. Best, Jennifer Kindy

Notice that the are of ∆ CDE is 1/2*(altitude)*(base) = 1/2*BC*CD. Since ABCD is a square then the area of ∆ CDE is 1/2*(side)^2. (1) The circle has a radius of length 3 > diameter = side of the square = 6 > the area of ∆ CDE is 1/2*(side)^2 = 18. Sufficient. (2) CDE is isosceles. No actual measurements are given. Not sufficient. Answer: A.
