Pure bending equation:

(F/Ymax) = (M/I) = (E/R).

Ymax = 2y/2 = y.
I = Ar^2 in the above equation.
Then we get the answer A.

F/Y = M/I,
F = MY/I,
r = sqrt I/A,
I = Ar2.

By substituting the values, you will get the answer.

We have: F=My/I.
Also, I=√(I/A)=> I= r^2*A.
Now F =My/r^2*A => A= My/fr^2.
