Solution

The correct option is B

256


Initially, since the number of rows is equal to the number of columns, it is forming a square.

Let number of row be a

Total number of chairs =a2

a2=1225

a=225

a=3×3×5×5

a=32×52

a=3×5=15

Now, if we add 1 row and 1 column, number of row and column becomes 15 +1 = 16.

Now total number of chairs =16×16=162=256
