It is A because it can’t be B and it can’t be C and it can’t be D so my answer is A

Answer:12.32 units

Step-by-step explanation:Use the distance formula to find the lengths between two points:

the distance between (-2, -1) and (-5,-1) is

=

=

=3

the distance between (-2, -1) and (-3, -4) is

=

=

≈3.16

the distance between (-6, -4) and (-3, -4) is

=

=

=3

the distance between (-6, -4) and (-5, -1) is

=

=

≈3.16

Now, add all the sides:

3+3.16+3+3.16=12.32 units

Note: A property of a parallelogram is that it has two pairs of congruent sides, so for this problem, you could solve for 2 different sides, double them, then add and you will get the same thing.
