We can use the Shoelace Formula to check for the answer. 

 

Therefore, we have \(\frac{1}{2}\left|\left(0\cdot 3+1\cdot 2+5\cdot 0+4\cdot 1\right)-\left(1\cdot 1+3\cdot 5+2\cdot 4+0\cdot 0\right)\right|=\frac{1}{2}\left|6-24\right|=\frac{1}{2}\cdot 18=\boxed{9}.\)

 

Thus, I advise you to read about the shoelace formula here: https://artofproblemsolving.com/wiki/index.php/Shoelace_Theorem

 

EP is right.
