Is it B?
Here's my explanation: In order to determine the dimensions of the sheet of paper we have to find out the surface area of the rectanglular box, which is 432. Only B satisfies this condition.

Easier method without calculations is view pictorially.
See picture.

To wrap the box we need paper of size (2+8+2+8) by (2+20+2)
