area of small circle =(1/2)* area of large circle

area of large circle =$$π*(1/2)^2$$=π/4

area of small circle=π/8

diameter of small circle =1/(√2)

diameter of large circle is 1-1/(√2) times greater than small circle

option D is correct

Assume the big area is 4 and small area will be 2

πr^2=4
r =2

Small circle
πr^2 =2
r =√2

Diameter is 2*r
Hence
Big diameter minus small diameter is
4-2√2

Divide thru by 4(my assumption for the area b4 )
1-2√2/2

LCM will get (2-√2)/2

Ans D
