Start with a normal page of paper. Use part of the top edge of the paper as 1 of the 4 required lines in a rectangle. For your first two of the three lines you use, draw two identical, parallel lines coming from the top edge of the paper. Finally, draw a line to connect the bottom of the two existing lines. You have drawn a square with three lines. If this is quite confusing, think of it as matchsticks. On the floor, arrange the 3 sticks in a right-angled 'U' shape. Put the two points of the U against the wall to create a square/rectangle area inside the matchsticks and wall.

Obviously, it isn't possible to do this without twisting the rules slightly.
I made this up entirely by myself.

Answer / bhargav kandru

draw three overlapped lines, three lines one above the other. So you finally see only one straight line say of length 'l' . Now its a rectangle.Logic is simple as every straight line of any length say "l" is a rectangle with length 'l' and breadth "0". So you got a rectangle of area 0 with length l and breadth=0.
