    The question implies to CHOOSE which Set of dimensions will create a rectangle using all the rope. The problem is there's nothing to choose from here.

    Yes, I'm thinking it is a since she has 120 meters of rope and 12 * 10 = 120?

    That might be your first impulse, however the 120 meters of rope can't represent area. Using rope, you can rope off an area but you can't say that the length of the rope is the area.
