I think the answer is E.

If parallelogram is a rectangle, then the area will be 48.

for other cases, if the height of the parallelogram is 2 or 4 then the resulting base could be more than 6.

S = Base * Height

The answer is I & II. The A cannot be equal to the product of the two sides 48 (6*8)

Rectangles are parallelograms. 48 is also possible for the area.
