+1 for B.

Area of rectangle ABCD = L * W = 12 * 8 = 96

Since Point X lies on side BC of rectangle, therefore Base of the triangle AD = 12, and Height of the triangle AB = 8

Area of the triangle = 1/2 * B * H = 1/2 * 12 * 8 = 48

Hence, B.

When a triangle is formed by connecting a point on a side of the rectangle and the endpoints of the opposite side of the rectangle, such a triangle will have an area that is half of the area the rectangle. Since rectangle ABCD has an area of 12 x 8 = 96, triangle AXD will have an area of ½(96) = 48.

Answer: B
