Let 'A' and 'a' are the length of sides outer square and inner square respectively.
Given, sum of the length of a side of the outer square and a side of the inner square is 6.
Or, A+a=6---(1)
Given, area of the shaded region is 12
Or, $$A^2-a^2=12$$
Or, (A+a)(A-a)=12
Or, 6*(A-a)=12
Or, A-a=2---(2)

Adding (1) and (2), we have 2A=8 Or, A=4

So, perimeter of outer square=4A=4*4=16

Ans. (C)
