==> In the original condition, you need to find the radius of the circle and the central angle, so there are 2 variable. In order to match the number of variables to the number of equations, there must be 2 equations. Since there is 1 for con 1) and 1 for con 2), C is most likely to be the answer.
By solving con 1) and con 2), the answer is C.

Answer: C

Can you let me know how did you solve this question.
How you come to know O is center of the circle.
I thought answer is E

1. Angle is 120°, however we would need the radius and something to find the area of triangle. So this statement is insufficient.
2. Length of the chord is given here, however this statement alone is insufficient.

Combining both we would get the radius and subsequently the area of triangle.

So answer should be C

My take is E
It has to be explicitly mentioned that O is the center of the circle !!!!!!

What is the area of the region AOB shaded shown as above?

1) \(∠AOB=120^o\)
2) \(AB=50\)


Solution
Statement 1: not sufficient, as we can not find anything from this.
Statement 2: AB= 50 can not help us to find anything
Statement 1+2: radius of the circle can be found using formula lengh(AB)=2(pi)r*angle/360. As triangle ABC forms isosceles triangle.... its height can be found out, and hence Area of ABC can be determined.
Ans is C :thumbup:

Since it can not be inferred from the question stem / statements that O is the centre of the circle. We can't take O as the centre.
Hence circle has no role to play.

Now the question reduces to a triangle OAB, where angle AOB is 120 deg and side AB = 50.
Now can we find the area of triangle? NO.

We can have different triangles of different areas satisfying given conditions.


Answer shall be E.

Angle O is 120deg, side AB = Side A'B' but areas are different.

(PS: Dont worry about circle, we can always draw many circles passing through 2 given points.)
