Answer :

**To Find: Area of shaded region****Given: Side of square ABCD = 14 cm****Radius of circles with centers A, B, C and D = 14/2 = 7 cm**

Area of shaded region = Area of square - Area of four sectors subtending right angle

Area of each of the 4 sectors is equal to each other and is a sector of 90° in a circle of 7 cm radius. So, Area of four sectors will be equal to Area of one complete circle

Area of 4 sectors = Πr^{2}

Area of square ABCD = (Side)^{2}

Area of square ABCD = (14)^{2}

Area of square ABCD = 196 cm^{2}

Area of shaded portion = Area of square ABCD - 4 × Area of each sector

= 196 – 154

= 42 cm^{2}

**Therefore, the area of shaded portion is 42 cm ^{2}**
