A)$$\sqrt{2}$$
B)2
C)$$2\sqrt{2}$$
D)4

$$4s^2 = (2s)^2$$. Thus correct answer is B.

Pick an easy number Lets say, area is 25 then each side is 5.
Now area is made 4 times (quadrupled ) then Area becomes 100
If area is 100 then each side is 10
So each side of a square has been multiplied by a factor of 2.
