Correct Answer - Option 2 : 936 m

^{2}
**Given: **

Length of rectangle = 50 m

Breadth of rectangle = 40 m

Width of path = 6 m

**Formula Used:**

Area of rectangle = Length × breadth

**Calculation:**

Length of outer rectangle = 50 m

Breadth of outer rectangle = 40 m

⇒ Area of outer rectangle = 50 × 40 = 2000 m^{2}

Length of inner rectangle = 50 - 6 - 6 = 38 m

Breadth of inner rectangle = 40 - 6 - 6 = 28 m

⇒ Area of inner rectangle = 38 × 28 = 1064 m^{2}

Area of path = Area of outer rectangle - Area of inner rectangle

⇒ Area of path = 2000 - 1064 = 936 m^{2}

∴ Area of the path is 936 sq. m

The correct option is 2 i.e. 936 sq. m
