let b = 4,2
a= 2,1

so 2*1/ 4*2 = 1/4 IMO A

Let length of rectangle B be L and width be H
So, for rectangle A, length=L/2 and width= H/2

So, area of A/area of B=(L/2*H/2)/L*H=1/4

Let rectangle A be a 2x2 rectangle. Let rectangle B be a 4x4 rectangle. Then area A=4 and Area B =16, so Area A/Area B = 4/16 =1/4 A.
