# Tick the correct answer in the following and justify your choice : If the perimeter and the area of a circle are numerically equal, then the radius of the circle is

(A) 2 units (B) π units (C) 4 units (D) 7 units

**Solution:**

Given that the perimeter and area of the circle are numerically equal.

Let's assume a circle of radius 'r'.

Circumference of the circle = 2πr

Area of circle = πr^{2}

The circumference of the circle and the area of the circle are equal.

Thus, we have 2πr = πr^{2}

2 = r

Therefore, the radius of the circle is 2 units. Hence, the correct answer is A.
