Question stem:- What is the area of the quadrilateral KMNL?

St1:- x = y = 45

Refer the enclosed diagram, \(\triangle{NQL}\), \(\triangle{KPO}\), and \(\triangle{KMP}\) are isosceles right angled triangles(45-45-90) form. sides are in the ratio \(x:x:\sqrt{2}x\)
So base=height=10 and hypotenuse=\(10\sqrt{2}\)

Hence area of \(\triangle{NQL}\)=Area of \(\triangle{KPO}\)=Area of \(\triangle{KMP}\) (Base and height are known, area can be determined)

Total area of figure=Area of shaded region(100)+3*Area of triangle NQL
Sufficient.

St-2:- QL = 10
Area of the figure will be different at different measures of x.
Insufficient.

Ans. (D)
Edit: Fixed typo. Ans. (A)

Hi,

I think lot of assumption are made while solving this problem.
1. Shaded region is square.
2. KL is parallel to MN

Question stem says nothing about above assumptions.
Can I make such assumptions while solving DS problems.

Hi gvij2017,

1. Shaded region is square.- we needn't to know the type of quadrilateral it is. We have to find the area of the triangles, add the area of shaded region to get the area of total figure.
2. KL is parallel to MN:- a) KM is perpendicular to MN b)PO perpendicular to KL c) NQ perpendicular to KL ,Hence KL || MN

NO ASSUMPTIONS WERE MADE.

You said st 2 is insufficient and still picked D as the correct answer? PKN

Hi funsogu,
You have pointed it out correctly. My bad ,how did I write D? It is A. Need to fix typo error.

KM and QN are both perpendicular to the same lines. Therefore they are parallel to each other by the property of parallel lines. so the figure KMQN forms a parallelogram with two adjacent angles 90 degree, which means it is a rectangle. also the adjacent sides are 10. so the figure forms a square.
