Sam says the squares are tiny and 100 is too few. She's played Scrabble and thinks 400 is far too many. She uses her 50:50.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": A and C

She then calls down her +1, Marissa, her mom. They calculate what 10x10, 12x12, and 13x13 are, and Sam realizes none of them end in 5
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (225)
