Area of each of the 4 sectors is equal to each other and is a sector of 90° in a circle of 7 cm radius.

Area of each sector =

= 1/4 x 22/7 x 7 x 7

=77/2 cm2

Area of square ABCD = (Side)2 = (14)2 = 196 cm2

Area of shaded portion = Area of square ABCD − 4 × Area of each sector

= 196 - 4 x 77/2 = 196 - 154

=42 cm2

Therefore, the area of shaded portion is 42 cm2.
