The Area is as follows 5pi
The formula is r^2pi = 5pi
We can divide both sides by pi which leaves us r^2 = 5 so r= root of 5.
The diameter is twice the radii.
2(root of 5) which gives us 4,47 OR Squroot5*4
QB = same quantity
So the two quantities are equal

correct: C
area = \pi * r^2
5\pi = \pi * r^2
diemeter = 2r = 2 * radical(5)

So A and B are equal.
