Hint: Find the coordinates where the line \[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\] meets the coordinate axis. Draw a suitable diagram with these points and apply the area condition mentioned in the question. Area of a triangle can be found using \[\dfrac{1}{2}\times base\times height\].

Given that the line \[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]meets the x axis at A and y axis at B.

Now, for point A:

Let us put \[y=0\], in the line \[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]

\[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{0}{b}=1\]

\[x=a\]

So, Point A is \[\left( a,0 \right)\].

For point B:

Let us put \[x=0\]in the line \[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]

\[\dfrac{0}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]

\[y=b\]

So, Point B is \[\left( 0,b \right)\].

Therefore, we can plot the below diagram with the data we obtained.

Now let us assume point C as \[\left( m,m \right)\]since it lies on the line \[x=y\].

As mentioned in the question we have:

(Area of \[\vartriangle AOC\]) = 2(Area of \[\vartriangle BOC\])

\[\dfrac{1}{2}\times \left( OA \right)\left( CD \right)=2\times \dfrac{1}{2}\left( OB \right)\left( CE \right)\]

Since, area of triangle = \[\dfrac{1}{2}\times base\times height\].

We have:

\[OA=a\]

\[CD=m\]

\[OB=b\]

\[CE=m\]

Substituting the above values in \[\dfrac{1}{2}\left( a \right)\left( m \right)=\left( b \right)\left( m \right)\], we will have:

\[\therefore \dfrac{1}{2}\left( a \right)\left( m \right)=\left( b \right)\left( m \right)\]

\[a=2b\]

Now let us substitute \[a=2b\] in the line \[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]

\[\dfrac{x}{2a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1...........(1)\]

Substituting \[c\left( m,m \right)\] in the equation (1), we will have:

\[\dfrac{m}{2b}+\dfrac{m}{b}=1\]

\[3m=2b\]

\[m=\dfrac{2b}{3}\]

Therefore, the coordinates of C can be \[\left( \dfrac{2b}{3},\dfrac{2b}{3} \right)\].

Hence option D is the correct answer.

Note: We can also find the are of the triangle using the formula \[\dfrac{1}{2}\left| {{x}_{1}}\left( {{y}_{2}}-{{y}_{3}} \right)+{{x}_{2}}\left( {{y}_{3}}-{{y}_{1}} \right)+{{x}_{3}}\left( {{y}_{1}}-{{y}_{2}} \right) \right|\] when the three vertices of the triangle are known to us . But we adopt the formula of \[\dfrac{1}{2}\times base\times height\] to save time.

Given that the line \[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]meets the x axis at A and y axis at B.

Now, for point A:

Let us put \[y=0\], in the line \[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]

\[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{0}{b}=1\]

\[x=a\]

So, Point A is \[\left( a,0 \right)\].

For point B:

Let us put \[x=0\]in the line \[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]

\[\dfrac{0}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]

\[y=b\]

So, Point B is \[\left( 0,b \right)\].

Therefore, we can plot the below diagram with the data we obtained.

Now let us assume point C as \[\left( m,m \right)\]since it lies on the line \[x=y\].

As mentioned in the question we have:

(Area of \[\vartriangle AOC\]) = 2(Area of \[\vartriangle BOC\])

\[\dfrac{1}{2}\times \left( OA \right)\left( CD \right)=2\times \dfrac{1}{2}\left( OB \right)\left( CE \right)\]

Since, area of triangle = \[\dfrac{1}{2}\times base\times height\].

We have:

\[OA=a\]

\[CD=m\]

\[OB=b\]

\[CE=m\]

Substituting the above values in \[\dfrac{1}{2}\left( a \right)\left( m \right)=\left( b \right)\left( m \right)\], we will have:

\[\therefore \dfrac{1}{2}\left( a \right)\left( m \right)=\left( b \right)\left( m \right)\]

\[a=2b\]

Now let us substitute \[a=2b\] in the line \[\dfrac{x}{a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1\]

\[\dfrac{x}{2a}+\dfrac{y}{b}=1...........(1)\]

Substituting \[c\left( m,m \right)\] in the equation (1), we will have:

\[\dfrac{m}{2b}+\dfrac{m}{b}=1\]

\[3m=2b\]

\[m=\dfrac{2b}{3}\]

Therefore, the coordinates of C can be \[\left( \dfrac{2b}{3},\dfrac{2b}{3} \right)\].

Hence option D is the correct answer.

Note: We can also find the are of the triangle using the formula \[\dfrac{1}{2}\left| {{x}_{1}}\left( {{y}_{2}}-{{y}_{3}} \right)+{{x}_{2}}\left( {{y}_{3}}-{{y}_{1}} \right)+{{x}_{3}}\left( {{y}_{1}}-{{y}_{2}} \right) \right|\] when the three vertices of the triangle are known to us .
