From the figure = \((Area of the square/2) - 2*(Area of the Quarter circles of radius 7)\)
Area of the quarter circle =\((Pi*r^2)/4\)
= \(14*14/2 - 2(Pi*7*7/4)\)

= \(14*7 - ((22/7)*7*7)/2\)
=\(14*7-11*7\)
= \((14-11)*7\)
=21

Option A is correct

good question

given two semi circles of radius 7 so area of both would be
2 * pi * 49 /2 = 49 pi but since we are interested in finding the shaded area we need to so 49/2 * pi = ~77

area of rectangle 14*7 = 98
shaded region = 98-77 = 21 IMO A
