I sketched and wrote the values on the figure.

Smallest square with side s:
4s = perimeter
4s = 8
s = 2 = width of both rectangles

Middle-sized square:
4s = 20
s = 5 = length of both rectangles

Each rectangle's perimeter is
2 + 2 + 5 + 5 = 14

Sum of both perimeters is
14 + 14 = 28

Answer E

The smallest square has perimeter = 8 = 4*side = 4a
i.e. side of the smallest square, a = \(2\)

The Second smallest square has area = 20 = 4*side = 4b
i.e. side of the second smallest square, b = \(5\)

Perimeter of one shaded rectangle = 2(a+b)
Perimeter of both shaded rectangles = 2*2(a+b) = 4(a+b) = \(4(2+5)\) = 28

Answer: Option E

Since the squares have a perimeter of 8 and 20,
the sides of the squares are \((\frac{8}{4})2\) and \((\frac{20}{4})5\).
The rectangles share their lengths and breadth with these 2 squares.

Therefore, the 2 rectangles will have length and breadth 2 and 5 respectively,
and the perimeter of one such rectangle is 2(length + breadth) = 2(2+5) = 14

Hence, the perimeter of the two shaded rectangles is 2*14 = 28(Option E)
