    Answer: (c) 500/pai m 

    Solution:-
    A truck moves along a circular path and describe 100 m when it has traced out 36 degree at the centre. 

    Then, circumference of the circle = 100 x 360/36
     = 1000 m 

    Formula-
    The circumference of the circle = 2 x pai x r 
    So, 2 x pai x r = 1000
    r = 1000/2 x pai
    r = 500/pai

    Then, the radius of the circle is 500/pai m

    Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 500/pai m.
