Question: Shaded region = Semicircle - Area of triangle in semicircle = ?

Statement 1: The radius of the circle is 1.

Area of triangle can be calculated which is a right triangle (every angle at circumference in a semicircle is 90º) isosceles triangle with hypotenuse 2 hence

SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: Angle x is a right angle.

This statement is redundant as we already know by property of circles that (every angle at circumference in a semicircle is 90º)

NOT SUFFICIENT


Answer: option A

Can it be assumed that the vertex with the angle x is touching the circumference? if yes then the answer should be A

Hi saurabh9gupta,
It is clearly visible that the vertex with angle x touches the circle. NO ASSUMPTIONS. The below guidelines may be referred for a detailed insight.
https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-trick-r ... 01412.html
OFFICIAL GUIDE:

Problem Solving
Figures: All figures accompanying problem solving questions are intended to provide information useful in solving the problems. Figures are drawn as accurately as possible. Exceptions will be clearly noted. Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight. The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero. All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.

Data Sufficiency:
Figures:
• Figures conform to the information given in the question, but will not necessarily conform to the additional information given in statements (1) and (2).
• Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight.
• The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero.
• All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.
