Option C

Side of X=6
Side of Y=8
Hence side of Z=14

Hence area of square Z=196

Since the area of X is 36, a side of X is 6. Since the area of Y is 64, a side of Y is 8. Thus, a side of Z is 6 + 8 = 14, and the area of Z is 14 x 14 = 196.

Answer: C

Sides of X = 6 units
Sides of Y = 8 units
Sides of Z = (6 + 8) ie 14 units

So, Area of Z is 14*14 = 196 Units, answer will be (C)
