A square with diagonal $$10\sqrt{2}$$

Sides of the square = 10 ( As Diagonal of the square = $$a\sqrt{2}$$)

Area of the square = Area of the Rectangle = 100

As the products of the 2 sides of a rectangle = 100 , the other side must be a factor of 100

Among the given options all except (D) is a factor of 100 , Hence Anwer must be (D)

The side of the square is 10, so the area is 100.

Thus:

100 = L x W

Since 40 is not a factor of 100, 40 cannot be a side of the rectangle.
