Solution

The correct option is B 864 square units   

If a triangle and a parallelogram are on the same base and between the same parallels, then the area of the triangle is equal to half the area of the parallelogram.

So, Area BEC =  12 × Area parallelogram ABCD

Area BEC = 12 × 1728

                      = 864 square units
