A

Comparing the height of all the triangles height of the triangle CPX seems to be the least. Hence the area of triangle CPX will be the least

Area of any Triangle is given by - $$\frac{1}{2}$$abSinC = $$\frac{1}{2}$$bcSinA= $$\frac{1}{2}$$acSinB.. It will be maximum when Angle is 90 and minimum when close to zero or 180.

Hence A.
