It is based on the assumption that only the steel takes the tension and concrete takes compression.

So in the tension zone i.e, below Neutral Axis Concrete does not take tension therefore it cracks. That's why this section is called as Cracked Section.

In the cracked section (in singly reinforced beams) the total area of the section in terms of the concrete is Area of Concrete in Compression + Area of steel in terms of Concrete.

Concrete area in compression and equivalent area of steel in compression as per modular ratio is called the Equivalent section.

Cracked section is that portion of concrete which in beyond tension steel and is in tension so cracks may develop in this region.

Transformed area section is right. Transformed area if concrete is equals to modular ratio times area of steel.
