Let length of square A be 'l'. Then length of square B = '2l'

Area of square A = l^2
Area of square B = 4*l^2

Therefore square B is 4 times the area of square A

Let square A has side => 10 => area => 100 units
area of Square B = 400
hence 4 times area of A => E is correct..

consider side length of square A as 10 units
area of square A = 100 sq units
as per condition given in problem side of square B is 20 units
area of square B = 400 sq units
therefore area of square B is 4 times area of square A
