(a) Rs. 29, 700
(b) Rs. 22, 400
(c) Rs. 14, 847
(d) None of the above

Answer: (d) None of the above

Solution:-
The area of the circle = 707 m²

Formula-
The area of the circle = πr²

Then,  πr² = 707                                               (π = 22/7)
22 x r²/7 = 707
r² = 707 x 7/22
r² = 224.9545
Square root on both side,
r = 14.99 or 15
r = 15 m

AB = BC = CD                  (Given in the question)
Then, AB = 5 m
Therefore, the radius of the circle = 5/2 = 2.5 m
So, the area of the circle which diameter AB = 22 x 2.5 x 2.5/2 x 7
= 9.82 m²
Thus, the area of both smallest semicircle = 2 x 9.82
= 19.64 m²

AC = 10 m
Therefore, radius of the circle = 10/2 = 5 m
So, the area of the semicircle = 22 x 5 x 5 /7 x 2
= 39.28 m²
Thus, the area of both big semicircles = 2 x 39.28
= 78.57 m²

Then, area of the shaded part = 78.57 – 19.64
= 58.93 m²

Rate of the leveling = Rs. 63 per square meter
So, cost of the leveling the shaded region = 58.93 x 63
= Rs. 3712.68

Hence, the correct answer is option (4) None of the above.
