QTY B : find area of parallelogram, only perimeter is given.

But we donot have any more information about the height and we are left with 2 unknown. The answer will result to D.

Let solve to find out

Given \(2 * (a + b) = 16\) , a and b are the two sides of parallelogram

or a + b = 8

Now the area of parallelogram = base * height , but we donot have enough info to solve it

Option D
