Side of larger Square = 1/4.

Side of each smaller square 1/4*1/2 = 1/8

So, perimeter of each smaller = 4 *1/8 = 1/2

hence, D

Since the perimeter of the larger square is 1, each side is 1/4. Thus, each side of each smaller square is (1/4)/2 = 1/8.

Finally the perimeter of one of the smaller squares is 4 x 1/8 = 1/2.

Answer: D
