Answer: (b) 4 square units

Solution:-
Formula-
The area of the rhombus = product of both diagonals /2 

RE: A rhombus is formed by joining midpoints of the rectangle in the suitable order


Both diagonals of rhombus = length and breadth of rectangle 
So, the area of the rectangle = 2 x area of the rhombus 
 = 2 x 2 
 = 4 square units. 

Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 4 square units.
