Let the resistance per unit length be \lambda. Then,
 \lambda = 4/2\pi r
=> resistance of the specimen wire connected along the diameter is:
R = \lambda \times 2r = \frac{4}{\pi } \Omega
Now after the specimen wire is connected along the diameter, three resistance come in parallel:
2 \Omega (resistance of one half of the circumference),  2 \Omega (resistance of the other half of the circumference) and R(resistance of the diameter). Solving, we get:
{\color{DarkRed}R_{eq} = \frac{4}{4+\pi } \Omega }

Perimeter of the half circle is πr + 2r where r is radius of the circle.  Along the diameter the circle is divided into two unequal parts of length πr and 2r which are parallel to each other.
Resistance of each part:
1) 4*π/(π+2)
2) 4*2/(π+2)
Equivalent resistance is:
