Solution

Let the the radii of the two circles be r and R, the circumferences of the circles be c and C and the areas of the two circles be a and A.

Now,

`"a"/"A" = 9/4`

`=>(pi"r"^2)/(pi"R"^2) = (3/2)^2`

`=>"r"/"R" = 3/2`

Now, the ratio between their circumferences is given by

`c/C = (2pi"r")/(2pi"R")`

`="r"/"R"`

`=3/2`

  Hence, the correct answer is option (a)
