oQ15)Here is my solution
Since AE=6cm and BC=12cm
Therefore, ratio of AE:BC is 1:2 and ratio of AF:FC is also 1:2
Length AB is divided into 3 equal parts of 4+4+4 due to the above ratio
Area BCF = 1/2 x 12 x 8cm sq = 48 cm sq
Area ABE = 1/2 x 12x 6 = 36cm sq
Shaded Area = (12 x12)  48 36 = 60 cm sq (answer)

Hey sundarshoba
Following pls find worked solution for Q14 (as per attached).
Pls refer to attached diagram in question.
Label diagram as shown.
(***  buffer up for alignment purpose)
Join diagonal BD. 2 Big (B ) Quadrants (CBD, centre C) and (ABD, centre A); 4 Small (S) Quadrants (FOD, centre F), (GDO, centre G), (HBO, centre H), (EOB, centre E)
A***********E***********B

D***********F***********C
in Triangle ABD, label the larger unshaded part, X. Label the 2 unshaded halfleaves, Y (enclosed by S [(FOD, centre F)]) and Z (enclosed by S [(HBO, centre H)]) respectively.
Unshaded X = Big Square (ABCD)  B (CBD, centre C)
= (20 x 20)  [(pi x 20 x 20)/4]
= 400  100 pi
in Triangle ABD, there are 2 unshaded halfleaves. Label one of them Y.
Y = S [(FOD, centre F)]  Triangle FOD
= [(pi x 10 x 10)/4]  [(10 x 10) / 2]
= 25 pi  50
1 Shaded area (in Triangle ABD)
= Triangle ABD  2Y  X
= [(20 x 20) / 2)  2 (25 pi  50)  (400  100 pi)]
= 200  50 pi + 100  400 + 100 pi
= 50 pi  100
in Big Square ABCD, there are 2 of these shaded areas.
Total Shaded area = 2 x (50 pi  100)
= 100 pi  200
= 114.16 cm2 (nearest 2 dec places)
============================================
Trust this helps.
Do let me know again if this does not agree with the answerkey.
Cheers,

Hey Sundar,
An alternative solution to Q15 (as provided by GIM)
Q15
Join the line DF.
Triangle FDC + Triangle FAB = 1/2 Square ABCD = Triangle FDC + Triangle FAD
In other words, Triangle FAB = Triangle FAD
Given that AE = ED, Triangle FAE = Triangle FED. This implies that Triangle FAD > 2u area. So is Triangle FAB.
Hence, Triangle BAE > 3u area.
Area of Triangle BAE = (6 x 12) / 2 = 36 > 3u
Triangle FAE = 1u > 12
Hence, Shaded area = Triangle ADC  12
= [(12 x 12) / 2]  12
= 72  12 = 60 cm2
======================================
Trust this helps.
Cheers,
Edward
