**7) The diagonals of a parallelogram:**

a. Equal

b. Unequal

c. Bisect each other

d. Have no relation

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: (c)

Explanation: The diagonals of a parallelogram intersect each other at 90 degrees.

**8) Each angle of rectangle is:**

a. More than 90°

b. Less than 90°

c. Equal to 90°

d. Equal to 45°

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: (c)

Explanation: Let ABCD is a rectangle, and ∠A = 90°

AD || BC and AB is a transversal

∠ A + ∠ B = 180° (Interior angles on the same side of the transversal)

∠ A = 90°

So, ∠ B = 180° – ∠ A = 180° – 90° = 90°

Now, ∠ C = ∠ A and ∠ D = ∠ B (Opposite angles of the parallellogram)

So, ∠ C = 90° and ∠ D = 90°

Hence all sides are equals to 90°.

**9) The angles of quadrilateral are in the ratio 4:5:10:11. The angles are:**

a. 36°, 60°, 108°, 156°

b. 48°, 60°, 120°, 132°

c. 52°, 60°, 122°, 126°

d. 60°, 60°, 120°, 120°

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: (c)

Explanation: Let x be the common angle among all the four angles of quadrilateral.

As per angle sum property, we know:

4x+5x+10x+11x = 360°

30x = 360°

x = 12°

Hence, angles are

4x = 4 (12) = 48°

5x = 5 (12) = 60°

10x = 10 (12) = 120°

11x = 11 (12) = 132°

**10) If ABCD is a trapezium in which AB || CD and AD = BC, then:**

a. ∠A = ∠B

b. ∠A > ∠B

c. ∠A < ∠B

d. None of the above

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: (a)

Explanation: Draw a line through C parallel to DA intersecting AB produced at E.

CE = AD (Opposite sides)

AD = BC (Given)

BC = CE

⇒ ∠CBE = ∠CEB

also,

∠A + ∠CBE = 180° (Angles on the same side of transversal and ∠CBE = ∠CEB)

∠B + ∠CBE = 180° ( As Linear pair)

⇒ ∠A = ∠B
