A.

(A) If X=1/Y, then X*Y=1. Because S=X*Y, S=1.
(B) perimeter=2(X+Y), so you can only get X+Y=2.5, but still X*Y=?

I think answer is A too.

st.1
X * the reciprocal Y should be always 1.

st.2
x + y = 2,50 but we cannot know what the lengths of them exactly are.
x = 1,50, y = 1,00
x = 1,75, y = 0,75

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Regards,

Alex
