**Quantitative Aptitude – Geometry – Triangles**

**Question**

Let ABC be a right-angled isosceles triangle with hypotenuse BC. Let BQC be a semi-circle, away from A, with diameter BC. Let BPC be an arc of a circle centered at A and lying between BC and BQC. If AB has length 6 cm then the area, in sq cm, of the region enclosed by BPC and BQC is

A) 9π – 18

B) 18

C) 9π

D) 9

**Answer**

Option (B)

**Solution**

As per the question from CAT 2017 – Quantitative Aptitude – Geometry – Circles,

Let AB = a (a = 6)

CQB is a semicircle of radius a/√2

CPB is a quarter circle (quadrant) of radius a

So, area of semicircle = pi*a^2/4

Area of quadrant = pi*a^2/4

So, area of region enclosed by BPC, BQC = Area of tr(ABC) = 18.

Option (B)
