##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Quadrilaterals: Basic knowledge about regular polygon helps.

Side of the rhombus 's' = 6 cm
Angle between sides 'a' = exterior angle of an octagon
Therefore a = 45 degrees
Area of rhombus = sin a * s2
Area = (1/√2) * 36
Area = 18√2 cm2

The question is "Find the area of the rhombus."

##### Hence, the answer is 18√2 cm2.

Choice A is the correct answer.
