use the height of triangle as 4. Now use pythagoras theorem to calculate the base. And finally the area of triangle can be calculated.And that comes out to be 6

QA: 4*3 =12
QB: (0.5)*h*b
h = 4 (side of the rectangular which is perpendicular and acting as the height for the triangle)
b=5
(0.5)*4*5
=10

QA>QB, thus option A

Take few seconds analyzing the given figure. The parameters required for finding area of rectangle and triangle.
A: Area of rectangle is m = 4*3 = 12
B: Area of triangle is 0.5*base*height, where base is 5 and height will be equal to height of rectangle.
Area is n = 0.5*5*4 = 10
As m>n, the correct option to choose is option A.

Since they both have the same height, you can ignore that. The rectangle has area 4(ht), the triangle has area .5*5(ht). 4>2.5.

Answer A.
