hi Niharika

(i)  Sounds like just another name for a cuboid:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallelepiped

Look at the special cases section.

(ii)  Working on it.

LATER EDIT: (diagram in next post)

In my diagram the radius of the circumcircle is AF.  If you let AC = CB = a then you can get an expression for the area in terms of a.

G is the centre of the incircle so its radius is BFtan(22.5)  So you can get an expression for its area in terms of a.

As both will have a^2 this will cancel when you divide one by the other.

I've done that by measurement on my diagram and it doesn't appear to be any simple value.
