Is it A

A)
The first hint in the length equalities.
So, A(ABX) = A(BXC) = 32
YR splits BXC into 2 equal halves, so A(YRC) = 16
SR splits YC into 2 equal halves, so A(SRC) = 4

B) altitude is insufficient since we do not anything about the type of the triangle ABC.

I think he meant YX will split BXC into two halves. A(YXC)= 8

Again YR will divide XYC into two halves A(YRC)=4

SR will divide YRC into two halves A(RCS)=2
