(1) The radii shown are 60 degrees apart.
(2) The radius of the circle is 2.

Shaded area - - - > area of sector - area of triangle

Minimum info needed is angle of Arc and radius

St1) just tells that triangle is equilateral (60-60-60---> both radius gives equal angle)

Radius is still missing

Not sufficient

St2) gives radius but not central angle

Combining
We have both required. Don't calculate. Be assure that you know the answer can be derived.

Imho answer is C

Thank you = Kudos

PLAN: Area of the shaded region = Area of sector - Area of the unshaded triangle in the sector

Also, Area of Sector = (angle/360)*2πr


Question : Area of the shaded region = ?

Statement 1: The radii shown are 60 degrees apart

This gives us only the angle at the centre which also ensures that other two angles of unshaded triangle are 60º (as other two sides are equal to radius) but it doesn't give us the length of radius hence

NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The radius of the circle is 2

Now, we know the radius but we don't know the angle at the centre of the sector hence

NOT SUFFICIENT

COmbining the two statements

Area of sector = (60/360)*2π*2 = (2/3)π
Area of the unshaded triangle = (√3/4)*2^2 = √3

Hence area of the shaded region = (2/3)π - √3

SUFFICIENT

Answer: option C
