(1) The perimeter of S is 100.

(2) The perimeter of S is (50π)% longer than line segment AB.

Let r be radius so AB=2r then
(1) 2πr/2=100
r=100/π.....sufff
(2) 2πr/2=2r+50π/100....can calculate r...sufff

Don't you think there is something wrong in the highlighted line above.

We are given Perimeter of S is 50π % longer. So, it should be something like

πr = 2r(1+π/2). r will cancel out on both sides and we won't be able to find the value of r.

I marked A for the same reason.

B states Perimeter of S( pi R + 2R) = (50pi/100)2R + 2R
on solving LHS= RHS so cannot find R

However, the approach is ok, the equation for perimeter of semicircle isn't right.
Perimeter of semi circle is
(2r+πr) not (πr)
