  • If $y=f(x)$,then $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$ measures the rate of change of $y$ w.r.t $x$.
  • $\big(\large\frac{dy}{dx}\big)_{x=x_0}$ represents the rate of change of $y$ w.r.t $x$ at $x=x_0$
Area of the circle $A=\pi r^2$
Differentiating w.r.t $r$ we get,
$\large\frac{dA}{dr}$$=2\pi r$
$\large\frac{dA}{dr}_{(r=6)}$$=2\pi\times 6$
$\Rightarrow 12\pi$
Hence $B$ is the correct option.
