  • The area bounded by the curve g(y),y axis and the ordinate y=c,y=d is given by,\[A=\int_c^dx\;dy=\int_c^dg(y)\;dy.\]
Hence the area of the region bounded by the curve $y^2=4x$,y-axis and the line y=3 is the shaded portion as shown in the fig.
Hence $A=\int_0^3x\;dy.$
Here $x=\frac{y^2}{4}$
On integrating we get,
On applying limits we get,
$\;\;\;\;=\frac{1}{12}\times 27=\frac{9}{4}$sq.units.
Hence B is the correct answer.
