## Answer

To determine the area of a parallelogram, you can use the formula:

$$ \text{Area} = \text{Base} \times \text{Height} $$

In this problem, we are given:

- One side (base) of the parallelogram: 8 cm
- Corresponding altitude (height): 6 cm

Using the given values, we calculate the area:

$$ \text{Area} = 8 , \text{cm} \times 6 , \text{cm} = 48 , \text{cm}^2 $$

Thus, the area of the parallelogram is **48 cm²**. Therefore, the correct option is:

**Option D) 48 cm²**
