if we drop a perpendicular from B on the base AC, then it will be the height for both ∆ ABD & ∆ CBD.
Now base of both these ∆s AD & DC are equal.
Hence Area of ∆ ABD = area of ∆ CBD
Option C

A, E and D out as they are same options
B out as it is a bisector and not necessarily a perpendicular bisector (x and y can take other value as well apart from 90)

By POE C

i think height will be common for both the ∆ ABD & ∆ CBD while their bases are equal.

Option C

height of perpendicular form B to base AC is same for both triangles and value of base is also same since AD=DC
therefore it is clear that .....Area of ∆ ABD = area of ∆ CBD
