Let’s draw the diagram.

Let the side of the square be $x.$ And

DIAGRAM

the radius of inscribed circle be $r$ and the radius of circumcircle be $\text{R}.$

Now, $r=\frac{x}{2}$

The Area of inscribed circle $= \pi \; r^{2} = \pi \; \left(\frac{x}{2}\right)^{2} = \frac{\pi \; x^{2}}{4} $

The diagonal of the square will be the diameter of the circumscribed circle.

So, $\text{R} = \frac{\sqrt{2} \; x}{2}$

The area of the circumscribed circle $= \pi \; \text{R}^{2} = \pi \; (\frac{\sqrt{2} \; x}{2})^{2} = \frac{\pi \; 2 x^{2}}{4} = \frac{\pi \; x^{2}}{2}$

The required ratio $= \frac{\pi \; x^{2}}{4} : \frac{\pi \; x^{2}}{2} = \frac{1}{4} : \frac{1}{2} = 1:2$

Correct Answer $: \text{D}$

Use the following information for next two questions: A function $f(x)$ is said to be even if $f(-x) = f(x)$, and odd if $f(-x) = -f(x)$. Thus, for example, the function given by $f(x)=x^{2}$ is even, while the function given by ... following questions. The sum of two odd functions is always an even function is always an odd function is sometimes odd and sometimes even may be neither odd nor even
