    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.
