Answered

- 116 m
^{2} - 224 m
^{2} - 196 m
^{2} - None of these

Best answer

**Answer: (1) 116 m. sq.**

**Explanation:-**

Side a square garden with path= 30 m

Then, the area of the square garden with path= 30 x 30

= 900 m sq.

Width of the path = 1 m

Then, the side of the garden = 30 – 2

= 28 m

Then, the area of the garden = 28 x 28

= 784 m sq.

Then , the area of the path = 900 – 784

= 116 m sq.

Hence, the answer is (1) 116 m.sq.
