Correct solution is option A ) \(2a\alpha B\) 


"a" at any time "t" , the side of the square a= \((a_0-\alpha_t)\) , where \(\alpha_0\) side at t=0 . 

at this instant , flux through the square 

\(\phi = BA\cos0^o = B(a_o-\alpha_t)^2 \)

\(\therefore emf \ induced \ E= -\frac{d\phi}{dt}\) 

\(E=-B\times 2 (a_0-\alpha_t)\) 

⇒E= \(2a\alpha B\)
