I am getting B.

length of unframed picture = l
width of unframed picture = b

when width of frame is 1.
Area of framed pic = (l+2)(b+2)
Therefore, 2l + 2b + lb + 4 = m...[I]

when width of frame is 2.
Area of framed pic = (l+4)(b+4)
Therefore, 4l + 4b + lb + 16 = m+52...[II]

Subtract [I] from [II].

2l + 2b + 12 = 52
or, 2*(l+b) = 40 = perimeter of unframed pic
