(a) Concepts questions
(b) Calculation problems
(c) Long answer questions

Question 1.
Show that the quadrilateral formed by joining the mid- points of adjacent sides of rectangle is a rhombus.

Answer

The figure is shown as below

To Prove: quadrilateral PQRS is a rhombus
Proof:
In Δ ABC
P and Q are mid points of sides AB and BC
By Mid point theorem
PQ= 1/2 AC and PQ || AC -(X)

In Δ ACD
S and R are mid points of sides AD and DC
By Mid point theorem
SR= 1/2 AC and SR || AC --(Y)
From (X) and (Y), we have
PQ=SR
PQ ||SR
Hence PQSR is a parallelogram

Now in Δ BCD
Q and R are mid points of sides BC and DC
By Mid point theorem
QR= 1/2 BD
Nowe AC = BC
Hence
PQ=SR=QR
Now a parallelogram whose adjacent sides are equal is a rhombus.
Hence proved


Question 2.
P, Q, R and S are respectively the mid- point of sides AB, BC, CD and DA of a quadrilateral ABCD such that AC=BD. Prove that PQRS is a rhombus.

Answer


Given AC=BD
Proof:
In Δ ABC
P and Q are mid points of sides AB and BC
By Mid point theorem
PQ= 1/2 AC and PQ || AC -(X)

In Δ ACD
S and R are mid points of sides AD and DC
By Mid point theorem
SR= 1/2 AC and SR || AC --(Y)
From (X) and (Y), we have
PQ=SR= 1/2 AC ----(1)
Similarly in Δ BCD
Q and R are mid point of BC and CD
By Mid point theorem
QR= 1/2 BD
Similarly in Δ ADB
S and P are mid point of AD and AB
By Mid point theorem
SP= 1/2 BD
Therefore
SP=QR=1/2 BD ---(2)
AC=BD
So from (1) and (2)
PQ=SR=SP=QR
Hence PQRS is a rhombus


Question 3.
Prove that the quadrilateral formed (if possible) by the internal angular bisectors of any quadrilateral is cyclic.
Question 4.
PQ and RS are to equal and parallel line segments. Any point M not lying on PQ or RS is joined to Q and S and lines through P parallel to QM and through R parallel to SM meet at N. Prove that the line segments MN and PQ are equal and parallel to each other.
Question 5.
l, m and n are three parallel lines intersected by transversal's p and q such that l, m and n cut off equal intercepts AB and BC on p. Show that l, m and n cut off equal intercepts DE and EF on q also.

Answer


Given
AB=BC
To Prove:
DE=EF
Proof:
Let us join A to F intersecting m at G
The trapezium ACFD is divided into two triangles namely Δ ACF and &Delta AFD
In Δ ACF, it is given that B is the mid-point of AC (AB = BC)
and BG || CF (since m || n).
So, G is the mid-point of AF (by Mid Point Theorem)
Now, in Δ AFD, we can apply the same argument as G is the mid-point of AF,
GE || AD and so by by Mid Point Theorem, E is the mid-point of DF,
i.e., DE = EF.
In other words, l, m and n cut off equal intercepts on q also.


Question 6.
In a quadrilateral ABCD, CO and DO are bisectors of $\angle C$ and $\angle D$ respectively. Prove that $\angle COD = \frac {1}{2} (\angle A + \angle B)$
Question 7.
In a parallelogram ABCD, $\angle D = 135^0$, determine the angles measures of $\angle A \; and \; \angle B$

Answer


Opposite angles in a parallelogram are equal.
Therefore
∠ B=∠ D=135°
Adjacent angles in a parallelogram are supplementary
∠ A+ ∠ B=180°
∠A=180-135
∠A=45 °


Question 8.
ABCD is a parallelogram in which $\angle A = 70^0$. Compute $\angle B \; ,\; \angle C \;and \; \angle D$

Answer


Opposite angles in a parallelogram are equal.
Therefore
∠ A=∠ C=70°
Adjacent angles in a parallelogram are supplementary
∠ A+ ∠ B=180°
∠B=180-70
∠B=110 °
Again
∠ B=∠ D=110°


Question 9.
ABCD is a parallelogram in which $\angle DAB = 75^0$ and $\angle DBC = 60^0$. Compute $\angle CDB \; and \; \angle ADB$.

Answer

The situation is depicted in below figure

Opposite angles in a parallelogram are equal.
Therefore
∠ BCD = ∠ DAB=75°
In Δ BDC
∠ BCD + ∠ DBC + ∠ CDB =180°
∠ CDB= 180 -75-60=45°
Now alternat angles are equal
∠ ADB= ∠ DBC= 60°


Question 10.
ABCD is a parallelogram and X, Y are the mid- points of sides AB and DC respectively. Show that in parallelogram ABCD, AXCY is a parallelogram.

Answer


AB=CD ( Opposite side of parallelogram)
Since X and Y are mid-points of AB and DC respectively.
AX = 1/2 AB and CY = 1/2 DC
Therefore
AX = CY and AX || CY.
One pair of opposite sides is parallel and equal
Hence AECF is a parallelogram.



Question 11.
The sides AB and CD of a parallelogram ABCD are bisected at E and F. Prove that EBFD is a parallelogram.
Question 12.
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.

Answer


Given: AE = BF = CG = DH
Since all the sides are equal in Square
Therefore
BE=CF=DG=AH
Now in Δ AHE and BEF
AE=BF
AH=BE
∠ A = ∠ B
By SAS congruence
Δ AEH ≅ Δ BFE
Therefore by CPCT
HE=EF
∠ 1 = ∠ 2
∠ 3 = ∠ 4
Now but ∠ 1 + ∠ 3=90
As ∠ 3 = ∠ 4
∠ 1 + ∠ 4=90°
i.e ∠ E= 90°
Similarly we can proof for other sides and angles
Hence EFGH is a square


Question 13.
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.
Question 14.
ABCD is a parallelogram, AD is produced to E so that DE = DC and EC produced meets AB produced in F. Prove that BF = BC.
Question 15.
ABCD is a parallelogram P is a point on AD such that AP = 1/3 AD and Q is a point on BC such that CQ = 1/3 BC. Prove that AQCP is a parallelogram.
Question 16.
P is the mid- point of side AB of a parallelogram ABCD. A line through B parallel to PD meets DC at Q and AD produced at R. Prove that
  1. AR = 2BC
  2. BR = 2BQ.
Question 17.
ABCD is a kite having AB = AD and BC = CD. Prove that the figure formed by joining the mid- points of the side, in order, is a rectangle.
Question 18.
ABC is a triangle. D is a point on AB such that AD = ¼ AB and E is the point on A such that AE = ¼ AC. Prove that DE = ¼ BC.
Question 19.
If the diagonals of a parallelogram are equal, then show that it is a rectangle.
Question 20.
In a parallelogram, show that the angle bisectors of two adjacent angles intersect at right angles.
Question 21.
Show that the line segment joining the mid- point of any two sides of a triangle is parallel to third side and is equal to half of it.
Question 22.
