  1. S1 + S2 = S
  2. S1 + S2 = 2S
  3. S1 + S2 = 3S

Semi-Circle Lunes
Shaded portions are called lunes

Area of two lunes=Area of triangle

So Ans is 1
ie S1+S2=S

Here 1/2 pi (b/2)^2 = 1/2 pi(a/2)^2 + 1/2 pi(c/2)^2 . So the area of larger semicircle is the sum of other two semicircles.That is
S + A = S1+S2 + A where A is the area of common portions.
S1+S2 = S
