Question 1.
In a parallelogram ABCD, determine the sum of angles ZC and ZD.
Solution:
In a ||gm ABCD,
∠C + ∠D = 180°
(Sum of consecutive angles) Question 2.
In a parallelogram ABCD, if ∠B = 135°, determine the measures of its other angles.
Solution:
In a ||gm ABCD, ∠B = 135° ∴ ∠D = ∠B = 135° (Opposite angles of a ||gm)
But ∠A + ∠B = 180° (Sum of consecutive angles)
⇒ ∠B + 135° = 180°
∴ ∠A = 180° – 135° = 45°
But∠C = ∠B = 45° (Opposite angles of a ||gm)
∴ Angles are 45°, 135°, 45°, 135°.

Question 3.
ABCD is a square, AC and BD intersect at O. State the measure of ∠AOB.
Solution:
In a square ABCD,
Diagonal AC and BD intersect each other at O
∵ Diagonals of a square bisect each other at right angle
∵∠AOB = 90° Question 4.
ABCD is a rectangle with ∠ABD = 40°. Determine ∠DBC.
Solution:
In rectangle ABCD, ∠B = 90°, BD is its diagonal
But ∠ABD = 40°
and ∠ABD + ∠DBC = 90°
⇒ 40° + ∠DBC = 90°
⇒ ∠DBC = 90° – 40° = 50°
Hence ∠DBC = 50°

Question 5.
The sides AB and CD of a parallelogram ABCD are bisected at E and F. Prove that EBFD is a parallelogram.
Solution:
Given : In ||gm ABCD, E and F are the mid points of the side AB and CD respectively
DE and BF are joined
To prove : EBFD is a ||gm
Construction : Join EF Proof : ∵ ABCD is a ||gm
∴ AB = CD and AB || CD
(Opposite sides of a ||gm are equal and parallel)
∴ EB || DF and EB = DF (∵ E and F are mid points of AB and CD)
∴ EBFD is a ||gm.

Question 6.
P and Q are the points of trisection of the diagonal BD of the parallelogram ABCD. Prove that CQ is parallel to AP. Prove also that AC bisects PQ.
Solution:
Given : In ||gm, ABCD. P and Q are the points of trisection of the diagonal BD To prove : (i) CQ || AP
AC bisects PQ
Proof: ∵ Diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other
∴ AO = OC and BO = OD
∴ P and Q are point of trisection of BD
∴ BP = PQ = QD …(i)
∵ BO = OD and BP = QD …(ii)
Subtracting, (ii) from (i) we get
OB – BP = OD – QD
⇒ OP = OQ
OA = OC and OP = OQ (proved)
Diagonals AC and PQ bisect each other at O
∴ APCQ is a parallelogram
Hence AP || CQ.

Question 7.
ABCD is a square. E, F, G and H are points on AB, BC, CD and DA respectively, such that AE = BF = CG = DH. Prove that EFGH is a square.
Solution:
Given : In square ABCD
E, F, G and H are the points on AB, BC, CD and DA respectively such that AE = BF = CG = DH
To prove : EFGH is a square
Proof : E, F, G and H are points on the sides AB, BC, CA and DA respectively such that
AE = BF = CG = DH = x (suppose)
Then BE = CF = DG = AH = y (suppose)
Now in ∆AEH and ∆BFE AE = BF (given)
∠A = ∠B (each 90°)
AH = BE (proved)
∴ ∆AEH ≅ ∆BFE (SAS criterion)
∴ ∠1 = ∠2 and ∠3 = ∠4 (c.p.c.t.)
But ∠1 + ∠3 = 90° and ∠2 + ∠4 = 90° (∠A = ∠B = 90°)
⇒ ∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 = 90° + 90° = 180°
⇒ ∠1 + ∠4 + ∠1 + ∠4 = 180°
⇒ 2(∠1 + ∠4) = 180°
⇒ ∠1 + ∠4 = $$\frac { { 180 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }$$  = 90°
∴ ∠HEF = 180° – 90° = 90°
Similarly, we can prove that
∠F = ∠G = ∠H = 90°
Since sides of quad. EFGH is are equal and each angle is of 90°
∴ EFGH is a square.

Question 8.
ABCD is a rhombus, EABF is a straight line such that EA = AB = BF. Prove that ED and FC when produced meet at right angles.
Solution:
Given : ABCD is a rhombus, EABF is a straight line such that
EA = AB = BF
ED and FC are joined
Which meet at G on producing To prove: ∠EGF = 90°
Proof : ∵ Diagonals of a rhombus bisect
each other at right angles
AO = OC, BO = OD
∠AOD = ∠COD = 90°
and ∠AOB = ∠BOC = 90°
In ∆BDE,
A and O are the mid-points of BE and BD respectively.
∴ AO || ED
Similarly, OC || DG
In ∆ CFA, B and O are the mid-points of AF and AC respectively
∴ OB || CF and OD || GC
OC || DG and OD || CG
∴ DOCG is a parallelogram.
∴ ∠DGC = ∠DOC (opposite angles of ||gm)
∴ ∠DGC = 90° (∵ ∠DOC = 90°)
Hence proved.

Question 9.
ABCD is a parallelogram, AD is produced to E so that DE = DC = AD and EC produced meets AB produced in F. Prove that BF = BC.
Solution:
Given : In ||gm ABCD,
AB is produced to E so that
DE = DA and EC produced meets AB produced in F.
To prove : BF = BC
Proof: In ∆ACE, O and D are the mid points of sides AC and AE
∴ DO || EC and DB || FC
⇒ BD || EF
∴ AB = BF
But AB = DC (Opposite sides of ||gm)
∴ DC = BF
Now in ∆EDC and ∆CBF,
DC = BF (proved)
∠EDC = ∠CBF
(∵∠EDC = ∠DAB corresponding angles)
∠DAB = ∠CBF (corresponding angles)
∠ECD = ∠CFB (corresponding angles)
∴ AEDC ≅ ACBF (ASA criterion)
∴ DE = BC (c.p.c.t.)
⇒ DC = BC
⇒ AB = BC
⇒ BF = BC (∵AB = BF proved)
Hence proved.
