  1. A wire would enclose an area of 1936 m2, if it is bent into a square. The wire is cut into two pieces. The longer piece is thrice as long as the shorter piece. The long and the short pieces are bent into a square and a circle, respectively. Which of the following choices is closest to the sum of the areas enclosed by the two pieces in square meters?
    1. 1096
    2. 1111
    3. 1243
    4. 2486
Correct Option: C

Side of the square = 44 m
Long piece = 44 × 3 = 132 m and short piece = 44 m
Hence, equating these values with the perimeter of square and circle respectively we will get the required answer as 1243 m2.
