    Obviously break down the problem rod by rod.

    And if you're really stuck, you're just going to integrate rod by rod.

    I (BC) = ma^2/6 ryt ?

    Its basically a maths ques, you just need to find rod lengths, after doing that you just have to calculate moment of inertia of each rod about B and add all

    Yup . i Have Calculated the length of rods BC = a/sqrt(2) , AC = a/sqrt(2) , DB = (sqrt2) * a / sqrt3

    For calculation of I,

    Because the axis is perpendicular to plane, the rod will make 90 degrees with the axis, doesn't matter how it is placed.

    So DB = 2M a^2 /9

    And AC = ma^2/6 + 3ma^2/6 = 2ma^2 /3

    So sum = ma^2 (2/3 + 2/9 + 1/6) = 19/18ma^2
