Thanks for your response.

I tried to solve by matrix method and got the answer is 7/2 for triangle BCD. I assumed the area of parallelogram is twice the triangle as there are two triangle present.

Is my understanding correct?

Yes, that is correct. Well done, it is a tough question.

Hi, I tried solving this by finding the distance between the two points. For example, I first found the distance between point B and origin. Then point B and C. I was obviously wrong in this approach, but could you tell me how I was wrong here?

Hi,
Until and unless you mention the steps, it would be difficult to make an assumption where are you wrong.
