Solution

The correct option is A 256 m2 Since area of a square has to be calculated, whose diagonal length is 16√2 meters. The relation between diagonal and side of a square is : a√2=d, where, a = side of the square and d = length of diagonal (from Pythagorean theorem) ⇒a√2=16√2 ⇒ a=16m. Therefore, area is given by: A = a2 ⇒A=162=256m2.
