Smaller plot's, Length = l and width = w

Larger Plot's, Length = 4*l and width = 2*w

Area of smaller plot = l*w = S

Area of larger plot = 4l*2w = 8*l*w = 8S

The amount that larger plot's area is greater than the smaller plot's area = 8S - S = 7S

s=l*b
and
larger l= 4l & w= 2b
so 4*2*l*b-l*b
s(8-1)
7s
IMO B
