**Hint**: First of all we will assume two diagonals then will find the diagonals then will place the value of diagonals in the area formula. Will use a cross-product method to find the diagonal product and then will find magnitude.

**:**

__Complete step-by-step answer__Let us take the given vertices –

$ a = 2i - 3j + k,\;{\text{b = - i + k, c = 2j - k,}} $

Let us assume that diagonals $ {d_1} = a + b $ and $ {d_2} = b + c $

Now, given that the diagonals of the parallelogram are –

Find $ a + b $

Place the values in the above expression –

$ a + b = (2i - 3j + k) + ( - i + k) $

Open the brackets and simplify. Remember when there is a positive sign outside the bracket then there is no change in the signs of the terms inside the bracket when you open it.

$ a + b = 2i - 3j + k - i + k $

Make the pair of like terms –

$ \Rightarrow a + b = \underline {2i - i} - 3j\underline { + k + k} $

Simplify the above equation –

$ \Rightarrow a + b = i - 3j + 2k $

$ \Rightarrow {d_2} = i - 3j + 2k $ .... (A)

Similarly for second diagonal

$ b + c = - i + k + 2j - k $

Make the pair of like terms –

$ b + c = - i + 2j\underline { - k + k} $

Terms with the same value and opposite sign cancel each other. Simplify the above equation –

$ b + c = - i + 2j $

Therefore, $ {d_2} = - i + 2j $ .... (B)

Now, the area of the parallelogram is

$ A = \dfrac{1}{2}\left| {{d_1} \times {d_2}} \right| $

Place values form equation (A) and (B)

$ A = \dfrac{1}{2}\left| {(i - 3j + 2k) \times ( - i + 2j)} \right| $ ..... (C)

Now find cross product –

$ \left| {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}}

i&j&k \\

1&{ - 3}&2 \\

{ - 1}&2&0

\end{array}} \right| $

Open the determinant –

$ = i( - 4) - j(2) + k(2 - 3) $

Simplify the above equation – when you subtract a bigger number from smaller there will be a negative sign in resultant value.

$ $ $ = 4i - 2j - k $

Now find the mode of the above vector expression –

$ \left| {4i - 2j - k} \right| = \sqrt {{4^2} + {{( - 2)}^2} + {{( - 1)}^2}} $

Remember the square of the negative number also gives the positive value. Since minus multiplied with minus gives plus.

$ \left| {4i - 2j - k} \right| = \sqrt {16 + 4 + 1} $

Simplify the above equation –

$ \left| {4i - 2j - k} \right| = \sqrt {21} $ .... (D)

Place above value in equation (C)

$ \Rightarrow A = \dfrac{{\sqrt {21} }}{2} $ Sq.units

**So, the correct answer is “Option D”.**

**Note**: Parallelogram law:

If two vectors are represented by two adjacent sides of a parallelogram, then the diagonal of parallelogram through the common point represents the sum of the two vectors in both magnitude and direction.
