The perimeter = 2(length + width). Since he ratio of length to width is 2:1 and the permittee is 30, then 2(2*width + width) = 30 --> width = 5 and length = 10.

CE = 2/5 CD = 2/5*width = 2, thus DE = width - CE = 3.

The area of triangle AED = 1/2*base*height = 1/2*length*CE = 1/2*10*3 = 15.

Answer: D.

Hope it's clear.

Refer diagram below; We require to find the area of shaded region

If AB = CD = x, other side would be 15-x (Perimeter = 30)

CE \(= \frac{2x}{5}\) , so DE \(= \frac{3x}{5}\)

\(\frac{15-x}{x} = \frac{2}{1}\)

x = 5

Area of shaded region\(= \frac{1}{2} * 3 * \frac{5}{5} * 10 = 15\)

Answer = D
