A) $$10 - \pi$$

B) $$2 (5 - \pi)$$

C) $$2 (5 - 2\pi)$$

D) $$6 + 2\pi$$

E) $$5 (2 - \pi)$$

Explanation::

The area of the rectangle = 5 * 2 = 10

Now for the arc area;

$$\frac{{Arc Area}}{{Circle Area}} = \frac{90}{360}$$

or Arc area =$$\frac{90}{360} * \pi * {radius}^2$$( radius of the circle = 2)

or Arc area = $$\pi$$

Since there are 2 Arc and both have the same radius ,

Therefore the area covered by the 2 Arc = $$2\pi$$

Therefore the Area of the shaded region = $$10 - 2\pi = 2(5 - \pi)$$
