The correct choice is (d) A rectangle of dimensions 100×1

Easy explanation: During discretization, when a mesh is made, care should be taken to avoid elements with very large aspect ratios (i.e. the ratio of one side of an element to the other) or small angles. In finite element equations the coefficient matrices depend on the aspect ratios. If the aspect ratios is very large, the resulting coefficient matrices are ill—conditioned (i.e., numerically not invertible).
