Yes. The OA is C. Does the "heavy line" means the outline of the figure?

Yeah, we can only guess because I cannot distinguish heavy lines:))

P.S. sometimes when the question is trivial and easy I'm having harder time than with hard ones... cause sometimes I cannot believe that it can be that easy...

I think its a common "Disease".... ANYBODY KNOWS CURE???:)lol

I'm still not clear with the 'total length of the heavy line segments'.

But, 'length of line segments', perhaps indicate that it should be a perimeter oly, meaning, it's not the length of the rectangle, which I had instantly thought!

However, heavy line segments, still can't make a clue of the language.

From what I see from other answers, it is the perimeter of the non-overlapping region, correct??

Can't/shouldn't be a part of the actuals...
