Actually any of the answers could be the area of a square.

I will assume you meant to say that the side of the square has to be a whole number.

In that case which of the given numbers is a perfect square, that is, which number yields an exact square root?

The formula for the area of a square is:

A = s^2 (s squared)

Find the square root of each of the choices to find the possible area.
