Ans is option (D)

The minute covers  $360^{\circ}$  in $60$ minutes. Hence, it will cover  $\frac{360^{\circ}\times 35}{60}=210^{\circ}$  in $35$ minutes.

Now, area of  a sector with radius $r$ units and $\theta$ angle subtended at the centre ,is :  $\frac{1}{2}\times r^{2}\times \theta$  units   ($\theta$ in radian) .

So, $210^{\circ}=210^{\circ}\times \frac{\pi}{180^{\circ}}$  radians  $=\frac{11}{3}$ radians

$\therefore$  Area of the sector:  $\frac{1}{2}\times 100\times \frac{11}{3}=183.33$ cm$^{2}$
