Triangles can be formed by either two points from a, b, c, d and one from e, f or two of e f and one from a, b, c, d.
In each of the triangles, height is same. I. E. Distance between two lines ad and ef. Only base changes when base=ab, ac and ad. With 1, 2, 3 units. Ef=ab=bc=cd= 1 unit.
So, there are 3 possibilities for the area.
Imo, option a.
