### Explanatory Answer | GMAT Geometry Practice

#### KeyData

Sides AB and CD are parallel to x-axis.
So, AD and BC will be parallel to y-axis.

The x-coordinates take values from 12 to 28.
We can draw lines parallel to y-axis corresponding to each of these values.
So, we will be able to draw 17 vertical lines.

The y-coordinates take values from 5 to 13.
We can draw lines parallel to x-axis corresponding to each of these values.
So, we will be able to draw 9 horizontal lines.

#### Key Question: What maketh a rectangle?

2 horizontal lines and two vertical lines will form a rectangle
Number of ways of selecting 2 horizontal lines from 9 horizontal lines = 9C2
