To do:

We have to split the given shapes into rectangles and find their areas.

Solution:

"Screenshot
(a) Area of the given figure $=$ Area of rectangle I $+$ Area of rectangle II

$=12\times2+8\times2$

$=24+16$

$=40\ cm^2$

(b) Area of the given figure $=$ Area of square I $+$ Area of square II $+$ Area of square III $+$ Area of square IV $+$ Area of square V

$=7^2+7^2+7^2+7^2+7^2$

$=5\times49$

$=245\ cm^2$

(c) Area of the given figure $=$ Area of rectangle I $+$ Area of rectangle II $+$ Area of rectangle III

$=2\times1+5\times1+2\times1$

$=2+5+2$

$=9\ cm^2$
