**Solution:**

**False**

Given diameter of circle is d.

∴ Diagonal of inner square = Diameter of circle = d

Let side of inner square EFGH be x.

∴ In right angled ΔEFG,

But side of the outer square ABCS = Diameter of circle = d

∴ Area of outer square = d

^{2 }Hence, area of outer square is not equal to four times the area of the inner square.

**Question 4:
**Is it true to say that area of segment of a circle is less than the area of its corresponding sector? Why?

**Solution:**

**False**

**Question 12:
**Circumference of two circles are equal. Is it necessary that their areas be equal? Why?

**Solution:**

**True**

If circumference of two circles are equal, then their corresponding radii are equal. So, their areas will be equal.

**Question 13:
**Areas of two circles are equal. Is it necessary that their circumferences are equal? Why?

**Solution:**

If areas of two circles are equal, then their corresponding radii are equal. So, their circumference will be equal.

**Question 14:
**Is it true to say that area of a square inscribed in a circle of diameter p cm is p

^{2}cm

^{2 }? Why?

**Solution:**

**True**

When the square is inscribed in the circle, the diameter of a circle is equal to the diagonal of a square but not the side of the square.
