Area of circle =  $\pi\times r^{2}=\pi \times \frac{d^{2}}{4}=\pi\times \frac{256}{4}=64\pi$ square inches

Area of semicircle = $\frac{1}{2} \times$ area of circle $= \frac{\pi r^2}{2}$

Diameter $=16$ inches $\implies$ radius $=8$ inches

Required Area $=\frac{\pi r^2}{2} = \frac{\pi \times 8^2}{2} = 32\pi$ square inches.

Option (A) is correct.
