Suggestion : Draw the figure

As we can see that the figure drawn is a trapezium with parallel sides of length 1 and 3 unit lengths and distance between the parallel sides is 2 units

hence area of the shaded region = (1/2)(sum of parallel sides*Distance between them = (1/2)*(1+3)*2 = 4 units

Answer: Option C

\(? = {S_{{\rm{shaded}}}}\,\,\,:\,\,\,\,\left\{ \matrix{
\,xy > 0\, \hfill \cr
\,0 < y < 2\,\,\,\, \hfill \cr
\,x < y + 1 \hfill \cr} \right.\,\,\,\,\,\, \cong \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\left\{ \matrix{
\,x > 0\, \hfill \cr
\,0 < y < 2\,\,\,\, \hfill \cr
\,y > x - 1 \hfill \cr} \right.\,\)


\(? = {S_{\rm{I}}} + {S_{{\rm{II}}}} = 1 \cdot 2 + {{\left( {3 - 1} \right) \cdot 2} \over 2} = 4\,\,\,\,\, \Rightarrow \,\,\,\,\left( {\rm{C}} \right)\)


We follow the notations and rationale taught in the GMATH method.

Regards,
Fabio.
