Please follow the image below, in which we show that the focused-region is a right isosceles triangle.

Image

\(? = {S_\Delta } = \frac{{2 \cdot 2}}{2} = 2\)

The right answer is therefore (B).


This solution follows the notations and rationale taught in the GMATH method.

Regards,
Fabio.

The region can be sketched in the xy-plane as shown below.

The area of the shaded triangle above is \((\frac{1}{2})(3-1)(4-2) = (\frac{1}{2})*2*2 = 2\)


Therefore, B is the answer.

Answer: B
