Why not option A?

It's option A.

Abhishek said: (Apr 2, 2017)  
Please explain. Why not option A is correct?

Rohit said: (Aug 31, 2017)  
Yes, Options D is right.

RcosΔ/2 = length between the midpoint of long chord and center of the curve.

So, option D is right.

Option D is correct. Considering the rigth angle on the center of the cord, then apply trigonometric functions.

Length of the chord - diameter multiply by the half degree of the sine.
= D x sin angle/2
= 2R x sine θ/2
