Since the height is common for all three triangles
and the base is 3 for triangle ABC and 1 for triangle ADC.
The bases for the triangles are in ratio 3:1.

Since heights for both the triangles are equal, and
the formula for area is \(\frac{1}{2} * base * height\)
, the areas will also be in the same ratio.

Hence, area of triangle ADC = \(30*\frac{1}{3}\) = 10(Option B)
