Solution

## The correct option is A 12Mr2If ′M′ is the mass of the semi-circular disc, then the mass of the complete disc will be 2M. Moment of inertia of complete disc about the given axis =12(2M)r2=Mr2The moment of inertia of the semi-circular disc is half of the Moment of inertia of the circular disc due to symmetry. Moment of inertia of semi-circular disc =12Mr2 So, (D) is the right choice.
