## Multiple choice Questions

Question 3
ABCD is a parallelogram and AP and CQ are perpendiculars from vertices A and C on diagonal BD

Which of the following is true based on given information
a. $AP=CQ$
b. $QD=PB$
c. $DP=QB$
d. $\Delta PAD \cong \Delta QCB$

All are correct
In Triangle $\Delta PAD \; and \; \Delta QCB$
$\angle P= \angle Q=90^0$
$\angle CBQ=\angle ADP$ ( Alternate interior angles of AB||CD)
So AAS congruence
Also as they are congruent, we get AP=CQ and DP=QB
Now Lets see the triangles $\Delta APB \; and \; \Delta CQD$
AB=CD
$\angle P= \angle Q=90^0$ (Alternate interior angles of AB||CD)
So QD=PB

b. Smallest angle is $30^0$
c.The second largest angle in the quadrilateral is $80^0$
d.None of these

(a) and (b)
Angles are $2x, 5x,4x,x$
Now
$2x+5x+4x+x=360$
Or $x=30$
Angles are $30^0, 60^0,120^0,150^0$

Question 5

d. None of these

(a)
Let’s call the point of intersection at diagonal as G
Then in triangle DAB
EG||AB and E is the mid point of DA,So by converse of mid point theorem,
G is the mid point of BD
Now in triangle DBC
GF||CD
G is the mid point of DB
So by converse of mid point theorem
F is the mid point of BC

Question 11
 Rhombus Is a quadrilateral with only one pair of parallel sides. Rectangles Is a quadrilateral whose Two pairs of adjacent sides of a kite are equal, and one pair of opposite angles is equal. Diagonals intersect at right angles. One diagonal is bisected by the other. Kite Is a quadrilateral whose all the sides are equal and opposite sides are parallel. Opposite angles are equal. Right-angled trapezoid Is a quadrilateral whose opposite sides of a rectangle are parallel and equal. All angles are 90º. Isosceles trapezoid A trapezoid having two right angles Trapezoid Is a trapezoid whose non parallel sides are equal

Question 12.
Show that the quadrilateral formed by joining the mid- points of adjacent sides of rectangle is a rhombus.

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 13
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.

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
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 14.
Prove that the quadrilateral formed (if possible) by the internal angular bisectors of any quadrilateral is cyclic.
Question 15.
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 16.
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.

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 17.
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 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.
A diagonal of a rectangle is inclined to one side of a rectangle at $25^0$. Find the acute angles between the rectangle diagonals.
Question 23.
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 24.
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 25.
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 26
