There is a man who plotted a land in shape of a trapezium with its parallel sides to be 15m and 5m & height=9m.
The Panchayat decided to take a triangular plot of land from one side to construct a school. He reluctantly agrees to this.
is this can be possible? Which are the possible triangular plots that can be taken by the Gram Panchayat?
and What value of the rich man can be seen here?
also, find area of parallelogram

I'm finding a hard time interpreting "What value of the rich man can be seen here?"

To get a parallelogram, slice off a triangle from one end so the dividing line is parallel to the other end of the trapezium.

The area of the remaining parallelogram is base * height

thank u so much sir
but Which are the possible triangular plots that can be taken by the Gram Panchayat?

3. Steve

he can take off a triangle from either end, so the remaining area is a parallelogram.

Draw the figure, and then draw a line from either end of the short base which is parallel to the other end of the trapezium. That will divide the figure into a parallelogram and a triangle.

Not sure how to say it any more clearly.
