Solution

## The correct option is B 4 We observe that we have 2 rows and 8 columns in the rectangle. Total number of dots in given figure =2×8=16. Let 'a' be the side of the square which we get after rearranging the dots of this rectangle. Total number of dots in that square =a2 Since the total number of dots is 16 a2=16 a=√16 a=√24 a=22=4 So, the side of the square will be equal to 4.
