What is the area of the circle above with center O?

(1) The length of major arc CA is 27pi
(2) The perimeter of OABC is 72

I choose A, but the OA is D. Please help me understand the solution.

The Quadrilateral OABC is evidently a square as
1. OA = OC
2. /_AOC is 90deg.
3. /_OAB is 90deg. as tangent is perpendicular to radius (as percieved from figure)

So statement A gives the value of pi*(360-90)/360*r, from which r can be calculated

Statement B gives the perimieter of the square which is 4r so r can be calculated

Both are independently sufficient

You have assumed that quadrilateral is a square. My question and doubt is precisely that, to which level we can assume things from the figure? It is not mentioned in question that AB and CB is tangent to the circle.
