the first parameterization is $z = 1 + (1+i)t,~0\leq t \leq 1$ $z = (1+t)+it$ $z^2 = (1+t)^2 + t^2 = 2t^2 + 2t + 1$ $\displaystyle{\int_0^1}~2t^2 + 2t + 1 = \left. \dfrac{2 t^3}{3}+t^2+t\right_0^1 =\dfrac 8 3$ for the 2nd parameterization $z = (1+t) + t^2 i,~0\leq t \leq 1$ See if you can figure out the form of $z^2$ and do the integration. Note this also goes from $1 \to (2+i)$ but by a different path.
