The rectangle created by the 2 parallel lines is of dimensions 4X8 = 32 units^2

The 4 semicircular regions will provide a net = 0 impact on the total area of the figure. Thus the total area of the figure = 32 \(\pm\)0 = 32. B is the correct answer.

IMO : B =32

Shaded figure looks like a rectangle with 2 Semicircles added and 2 semicircles removed.
Now those 2 added semicircles will cancel out with the removed semicircles. Check out the below figure

The area of the shaded region is nothing but the area of the rectangle with sides 4 and 8.
Area = 8*4 =32

Ans: B
Solution: If we shift these semicircle, which are out ward dense, to the blank space of the same size in between parallel lines we will get one big rectangle. so practically we need to find the area of the rectangle only.

which is 8x4= 32 [Ans]

i thought the figure will form a rectangle when we stretch the sheet
But length will be 4 and breath will be combined circumference of two circle=2pir=4pi.
Please explain again with diagram.
