In my opinion it must be Option (E).

Area of rectangle is $$(x+2)(x+3) = x^2+5x+6 = 100$$

So $$x^2+5x = 94$$

Area of square is $$(2x+5)^2 = 4x^2+20x+25$$ =4(x^2+5x)+25

Area = 4*94+25 = 360+16+25=401

Hence Option (E) is our choice.

Best,
G

If we simplify area of EFGH
=(2x+5)^2
=4(area of ABCD) +1
=4x100 + 1
=401
