Irrespective of the values of x and y, we can find the length of one side of the square = distance between (20,20) and (20,5) = 15.
Area = 15^2 = 225. Hence D.

it is mentioned that it is a square. so from (20,20) and (20,5) one side can be calculated . it is 15 so area of square will be 225.

area = a*a
a=20-5=15
area = 15*15=225

It is not possible to calculate with this info.

On might able to find a length of a side , but when you start plotting these points you wont end up having a square.

to find the area of square, length of one side is sufficient
from the coordinates given we can find that one side equals 15
hence area 15 * 15 = 225
option D
